DAGAABA: Purple Tiered Bike Basket


£ 49.00 £ 65.00




Give your trusty bicycle an instant upgrade with the beautiful DAGABAA bicycle basket. Designed in-house by The Basket Room, this hand-woven bike accessory boasts a striking purple stripe pattern against natural grass.

The ideal basket for shopping trips in town and days out exploring the countryside, our woven bicycle baskets are also roomy enough to store all your books and stationery, or your gym kit and trainers. Perfect for use as either a front basket or as a pannier attached to the back of your bike, the DAGABAA can also be attached to stairway bannisters, towel rails and cots for keeping all manner of household items tidy. Each bike basket takes up to three days to weave by hand, and is made from wild veta vera. This indigenous grass is harvested, split, hand-rolled and dyed before a skilled member of our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana sets to work on it.

To own one of our woven baskets is to become a vital part of our journey: a tale of sustainability, community and craftsmanship. We are proud to help provide an alternative means of income to farming communities whose primary source of revenue is inconsistent and heavily reliant on rainfall.

Each 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

If your basket gets wet, simply leave it to dry naturally and re-shape. As each basket is individually handmade, some variation in size and colour may occur.
