Transform your space and bring a dash of Ghanaian colour to your home with the KONONGO round floor basket, in a medium size. With green and blue tribal patterns, this fair trade basket is perfect for storing kindling and logs but can also be put to use all over the home – as a laundry basket, toy basket, vegetable basket, blanket basket – the possibilities are endless! Every round storage basket in this collection is totally unique – made once and sold once.

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. Want to know more about the Ghanaian weavers? Click here.
