These handmade baskets are created by talented weavers in Ghana, using elephant grass, which grows in abundance in the region of West Africa. The long leaves of the elephant grass make it perfect for creating gorgeous baskets such as these. Perfect for storage, going to the beach, for a picnic, or shopping at the Sunday markets!
Dimensions at widest point: 20-28 cm
Note: because each basket is handmade, sizes and colours vary. Please specify at checkout if you want a specific colour, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
