Our Bolga Baskets are personally acquired by our Director Simon in the satellite villages of Bolgatanga in northern Ghana.
We have been working with the same weavers since 1997 and have established a successful ongoing partnership that employs over 30 locals and their families.
We believe in supporting and respecting the artists we buy from, collaborating at local and fair market rates. We get to know each artist and supplier personally, establishing rapport and learning about the pieces they create before acquiring it.
As we trade directly with the artisans, there is not a certificate per se, even though the trade conditions match those of certified programs.
