Description

Declutter and bring a splash of Ghanaian colour to your home with the EFFIAKUMA log basket, in size small. With tribal-inspired patterns in pink, orange and turquoise, this tall basket is perfect for storing kindling and logs by the fireside but can also be put to use all over the home – as a laundry basket, toy basket, blanket basket – the possibilities are endless! Every log basket in this collection is totally unique – made once and sold once.

Most of the women who make these baskets are farmers first and foremost, but drought makes it increasingly difficult to live off the land. Basket weaving within the cooperative empowers these people with the opportunity to earn a flexible second income. Want to know more about the Ghanaian weavers? Click here.

The cotton calico liners produced to fit our laundry baskets are manufactured by a social enterprise based in East London. These cotton liners are sewn by women facing multiple barriers to employment, being previously unemployed and with no prior work experience. These women have learnt exemplary sewing skills on free training programmes and now work to commission, costed at the London Living Wage. Choose to have your woven laundry basket with or without the liner!
