KOFE: Orange & Black Stripe Sculpture Pot
KOFE is a true statement basket, bringing an elegant sense of organic texture and careful craft to any space it inhabits. This decorative woven basket is part of a very small and thoughtfully curated collection of handwoven African baskets, handcrafted in small batches by artisans working in Ghana.
With a curvy surface and a gourd-like shape, the neck of this vase-like woven basket is left beautifully unfinished, with loose fronds of elephant grass reaching upwards in raw and glorious disarray. Bands, stripes and diamond patterns in black and rust colour give this deco basket a distinctly rustic feel, and KOFE would sit beautifully in Scandi, Japandi, minimalist and midcentury-styled homes.
Use yours as a large woven vase for holding dried flowers and tall grasses - or let this incredible decorative basket speak for itself and stand alone.

HANDMADE IN GHANA
Our Ghanaian woven baskets are a celebration of Northern Ghana’s abundant natural raw material, and the age-old weaving skills of its people: sustainable style and ethical production, through and through. In our ongoing commitment to fair trade, our baskets are produced from natural materials indigenous to the region they are woven in.Home of the hardy veta vera grass, Ghana is where our collections of sturdier, stiffer baskets are made: woven bike baskets, square, rectangular and circular storage baskets, bolga shopping baskets, dog baskets and baby Moses baskets. Where Kenyan sisal grass creates supple and pliable baskets and bags, Ghanaian veta vera grass produces more structured baskets.
We partner with 24 weaving cooperatives and over 1000 weavers in Ghana, both male and female. This portable and flexible craft means that weavers can take their work home with them if preferred, completing their weaving around other household tasks and duties to create truly fair trade baskets. Bicycle baskets and storage baskets generally take around three days to complete, and the process – as you will see from the pictures – is meticulous.
"We wish to express our heartfelt appreciation to the customers who buy our baskets, which create employment for our women in Ghana. We say thank you and we wish to continue to do business with you next year." - Asabila, Cooperative Manager – Ghana
