Description

Makeover your fireplace and bring pop of Ghanaian colour to the home with the KANBA log basket, in size large. With geometric patterns in green and blue, this tall basket is ideal for keeping logs in but works equally well as a laundry basket, a toy basket, a basket for throws and blankets, yoga mats and workout equipment. Every handwoven log basket in this new collection is a unique work of art, designed by the weaver herself.

This log basket is made from robust veta vera grass – also known as ‘elephant grass’ - a local raw material that’s sustainably sourced and perfect for producing durable basketry. Most of the women who produce these baskets are farmers first and foremost, but persistent dry seasons make it increasingly difficult to live comfortably off the land and support the family, pay school fees and meet medical bills. Basket weaving empowers these creative women with the opportunity to earn a vital second income. Want to know more about the Ghanaian weavers? Click here.
