Bring some Ghanaian colour to your home and transform your space with the BASA round floor basket, in a large size. With stunning handwoven designs in green, navy and orange, this fair trade basket is perfect for storing kindling and logs but can also be put to use all over the home – as a toy basket, laundry hamper, or as a basket for rugs and throws – this really is the most versatile basket. Every round storage basket in this collection is totally unique, so you won’t find another exactly like this one.
Woven from ethically-sourced veta vera grass in Northern Ghana, this colourful storage basket is made from robust veta vera grass – an indigenous raw material that’s sustainably sourced and perfect for producing really strong baskets. This is the same fibre that’s used to produce our moses baskets, dog baskets and bike baskets. The grass is hand-rolled before being woven by a skilled member of our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana.
Most of the co-operative members who make these floor baskets are primarily farmers, but drought makes it increasingly difficult for these people to live off the land and support their families. Basket weaving brings the opportunity to earn a flexible second income. Each basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative. Want to know more about the Ghanaian weavers?
