Description

A central diamond design in black and orange geometric stripes, with tribal-inspired stripes in deep orange, black and minty green – and brown goat’s leather carry handles. WINNEBA is an award-winning Moses basket: recipient of the bronze award for best baby crib, pod or Moses design in the Junior Design Awards 2021.

The weavers who produce these Moses baskets work as part of a talented weaving co-operative in Northern Ghana. The majority of these weavers have been taught the age-old art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers. Agricultural work is the basis of most weavers’ incomes, but prolific drought makes it increasingly difficult for families to make ends meet. Basket weaving, and producing these exquisite woven Moses baskets, empowers women and men with the opportunity to earn a valuable second income.

Each Moses basket takes around three days to complete, using veta vera grass (also known as ‘elephant grass’) which grows wild in Ghana and produces wonderfully balanced and sturdy basketry. 

Choose to accessorise your basket with an array of essentials for your newborns ultimate comfort. Combine a foam mattress and cotton sheet or choose to upgrade to a natural coconut coir and wool mattress (made from hundreds of coconut fibres and recommended for newborn babies) and organic cotton sheet. You can even add a cotton liner to complete the set!

I recommend this product

Wonderful

I was having a problem ordering extra sheets on line so rang, and a very helpful person took my order over the phone. I am thrilled with the moses basket which arrived in a few days and I could not recommend the company more.
