CHUI: Orange, Green & Deep Purple Patterned Bolga Market Basket


£ 37.00 £ 53.00




Pot-shaped CHUI is woven in traditional Ghanaian bolga style and sports a orange, green and purple-black pattern. Made from sustainably-sourced veta vera grass in Northern Ghana, this ethically woven basket is finished with a binding of sustainably-sourced goat’s leather around the handle.

Indigenous veta vera grasses are hand picked and hand-rolled before being woven by a member of our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana.

Farming is the main income source for most of these Ghanaian weavers, but the long dry seasons make it increasingly difficult for families to pay school fees and medical bills. Basket weaving brings an opportunity to earn a valuable – and flexible - second income.
