Charming ALIKA bike basket sports a bright turquoise and pink pattern and is scaled down in size to fit children’s bikes and scooters and supplied with two leather buckle brackets for attaching to handles. Veta vera grass (also known as ‘elephant grass’) grows wild in Ghana and is incredibly sturdy when woven.
Our Ghanaian bike baskets are a celebration of Northern Ghana’s abundant natural raw material, and the age-old weaving skills of its people: sustainable style and ethical production, through and through. In our ongoing commitment to fair trade, our baskets are produced from natural materials indigenous to the region they are woven in.
To own one of our woven baskets is to become an important part of our journey: a beautiful story of sustainability and time-honoured craftsmanship. We are proud to support 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 mini 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.
