Description

Introduce a joyful splash of Ghanaian colour to your fireside with the SAVELUGU log basket, in a handy medium size. With vibrant bands of black and natural, this practical and beautiful woven basket is perfect for filling with firewood but can also be used as a laundry basket, a children’s toy basket, or a storage basket for bedding, towels, rugs and blankets. Every woven log basket in this new collection is a unique work of art, designed by the weaver herself.

The SAVELUGU log basket is handwoven from hardy veta vera grass – a Ghanaian fibre that’s sustainably sourced. Weaving these log baskets brings women the unique opportunity to earn a second income, balancing their farming work, childcare and household duties within the and supportive and ethical framework of a weaving cooperative.

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!
