GUA: Open Weave Bolga Shopping Basket


£ 79.00




Wage war on plastic carrier bags and make the gorgeous GUA your daily shopper! Natural and undyed, the lower portion of this handy and stylish shopper features an open weave design. 

Made from indigenous veta vera grass – also known as Elephant Grass – the preparation process is lengthy: grass is harvested, split, and hand-rolled before a skilled weaver from our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana sets to work. Sustainable through and through, this grass grows wild in Ghana and produces wonderfully balanced and sturdy basketry.  

Purchase one of our woven bolga baskets and you support our journey. We are proud to engage with the weavers in a truly fair trade, supplying a supplementary source of income to help sustain farming communities whose primary income can be unreliable. 

Each shopping 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
