This fair-trade two-handled basket was designed for the western market and is considered in Ghana to be a more modern style of Bolga basket. It is a perfect market basket with a wide mouth and deep bottom, it holds a lot of stuff! It measures approximately 13 inches at it's tallest and approximately 18 inches at it's widest (really, we mean approximately). These colors are bright, bold and beautiful. Bolga baskets are handmade in farming villages in the Bolgatanga region of northern Ghana and are perhaps the best known of all African baskets. They are woven from local, abundant kinkanhe grass and usually have a goat skin handle. Great for taking to the farmer's market or as a travel bag.
