The beautiful Pot design market basket is also called the Gambigo basket. It is handwoven out of elephant grass from Bolga,Ghana. The baskets are hand-woven in small villages using traditions passed down from generation to generation. They are woven out of renewable resources, including banana leaf and elephant grass, which grow abundantly in the region.
The leather handle is treated using an all-natural process (either dyed and oiled or painted). Note that handle colors will vary and may range from black to an oiled red color.
Each basket is 100% unique! Variations are to be expected and treasured.
Baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life. The pot design is much more difficult to weave than the round market baskets, and truly showcases the weaving skills of the artisans.
Pot style basket measures approx 10 inches across and approx 17 inches tall to top of handle.
The basket is washable and collapsible. .
No two baskets are identical.
Colors may vary due to nature of the natural coloring of the grass.
Baskets are shipped flat and require reshaping. Completely wet the basket in your bathtub or a large utility sink. Once it is saturated, shape it, putting something heavy in it to hold the shape you want, and let it dry.
