The Uniqueness of Bolga

Lying in the Red Volta River Valley of North Ghana is the colourful town of Bolgatana. Commonly known as Bolga, this district capital is one of Ghana’s famous market cities renowned for its beautiful handicrafts – crowned as the crafts centre of Ghana’s Upper East region. Its larger than life central market is where you can find one-of-a-kind straw baskets, hats and fans, among beautiful leather goods, jewellery and indigenous clothing.

We aim to share this wonderful creative culture with the Australian public. Our Bolga products are sourced directly from the locals of Bolgatana, who create our wonderful baskets, bags, hats, fans and more. Woven into each of these unique products are stories of the land, the town and of the people themselves.
