Introducing BOLGA: a beautifully hand woven bicycle basket with turquoise, pink, coral and burnt orange tribal patterns for a Ghanaian pop of colour.
Woven by our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana from an indigenous crop known colloquially as ‘elephant grass’, each bike basket takes around three days to weave once the grass is split, rolled by hand, and then dyed in boiling water.
Our bicycle baskets each tell an important story about collaboration and sustainable living. To become an owner of one of our woven baskets is to become a part of our journey, directly supporting the weavers in becoming less dependent on the unpredictable nature of self-sufficiency farming. Each bicycle basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative that made yours. Want to know more about the people behind the baskets? Meet the weavers here.

If your basket gets wet, simply leave it to dry naturally and re-shape. When not in use, we recommend storing somewhere completely dry (and damp proof!)
