Description

This beautiful natural woven shopping basket is one of The Basket Room’s African shopping baskets, ethically and sustainably handwoven in Northern Ghana. We love it because it’s the perfect size to pop your essentials in when you head out of the door to pop out for errands. It looks super cute too! Practical and stylish = our favourite combination!

Key features of the natural woven shopping basket:

  • handmade
  • made in Ghana
  • made ethically
  • made sustainablyThese carry-handle market baskets are produced in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana. All are made from veta vera grass which grows wild locally and is incredibly robust when woven – a stylish and sustainable alternative to plastic.Most of the weavers who produce these woven basket bags are men, having been taught the art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers.  Most of these men are farmers first and foremost, but the dry seasons make it increasingly difficult to make a reliable income from the land.

Dimensions (approx): H27-29cm x L32-34cm x W18-20cm
