We’re delighted to announce the arrival of HUNTUMA, our ethically hand woven Moses basket made by our partner co-operative in Northern Ghana. HUNTUMA 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.

This beautiful baby bassinet makes the perfect ethical baby gift and features striking black stripes and tribal-inspired blocks on a natural base. Its matching black carry handles come in buttery-soft and sustainably-sourced goat’s leather. The majority of these weavers are men having been taught the age-old art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers.  Agricultural work is the mainstay of most weavers’ family incomes, but poor rainfall and drought makes life extremely challenging. Basket weaving, and producing these exquisite woven Moses baskets, brings women and men the opportunity to earn a valuable second income.

Each Moses basket takes around three days to weave, using veta vera grass (also known as ‘elephant grass’) which grows wild in Ghana and is remarkably sturdy when woven. These Ghanaian Moses baskets are the perfect napping space for new arrivals.

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.
*Liner comes included as standard*
