Description

We’re delighted to announce the arrival of ATEBUBU - our beautiful handwoven baby changing basket, ethically and carefully produced by our partner co-operative in Northern Ghana. 

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. Or make a statement and buy the basket alone to feature as a gorgeous tabletop tray! ATEBUBU features plain woven carry handles rather leather wrapped making this a vegan friendly basket.

These ethical nursery accessories make the perfect eco baby gift and will transform any chest of drawers or floor space into a stylish changing area for your little one. Once the days of nappy changing are behind you, this flat woven basket can be put to use all over the home and nursery – a truly practical keepsake.

The majority of the weavers who produce these baby baskets 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 baskets, brings women and men the opportunity to earn a valuable second income.

Each changing basket takes around three days to weave, using a grass called veta vera (also known as ‘elephant grass’) which grows wild in Ghana and is remarkably sturdy when woven.

So impressed...

We adore our baby changing basket, it was exactly what we were looking for, the quality is just wonderful and well made. The order process was quick and easy and we have since bought more from The Basket Room as we want to encourage the great work that they are doing behind the scenes with incredibly talented communities producing these wonderful products.
