TABASAMU: Pink Striped Square Baskets


£ 30.00




Bring a distinctly Ghanaian pop of colour to your home with these fabulous square storage baskets in hot pink stripes against a natural undyed grass base.

Use your storage woven baskets – also known as bolga baskets - as fun and stylish nursery tidies for nappies and creams, or pop a couple on your bathroom shelves for keeping hand towels and loo rolls tucked away. Strong enough for keeping kindling by the wood burner and ideal for stacking with magazines, newspapers and home office filing, these square storage baskets are wonderful solutions to keeping the home both stylish and orderly. Best of all, our storage baskets can also be used with the globally popular IKEA cubed shelving systems.

Each woven storage cube takes up to three days complete, woven by hand using local veta vera grass. The process is intricate: before weaving can begin, the grass is collected and split by hand, then hand-rolled and dyed.

Our bolga baskets each tell an important story about collaboration and sustainable living. In purchasing any of our woven baskets you become part of this narrative, directly supporting the weavers in becoming less dependent on the unpredictable nature of self-sufficiency farming. Every woven basket comes with a thank you card from the co-operative that made yours. You can meet the weavers from Ghana HERE.
