Are your natural baskets sustainable?
Our entire range of market baskets are individually hand woven by our creative weavers in Ghana. The raw elephant grass is a 100% sustainable natural material. The grass is harvested, dried and finally boiled to dye. The weavers split each length into two then roll it to give it more strength. Each weaver has their own special techniques. Baskets may take 3 days to one week to make depending on the size, design and intricacy of the patterns.
Do you have the same style baskets but in different colours?
We sure do! To choose your preferred colours you can select from our range of handmade standard market baskets in a colour of your choice here.
We also have a range of unicolour market baskets you can choose from.
