Description

Makeover your fireplace and bring pop of Ghanaian colour to your home with the WOWA log basket, in size small. With geometric patterns in turquoise, navy and brown, this tall basket is ideal for keeping logs in but works equally well as a laundry basket, a toy basket, a basket for throws and blankets, yoga mats and workout equipment. Every handwoven log basket in this new collection is a unique work of art, designed by the weaver herself.


This log basket is made from robust veta vera grass – an indigenous raw material that’s sustainably sourced and perfect for producing durable baskets. Most of the women who produce these baskets are farmers first and foremost, but in the dry seasons it is difficult to live comfortably off the land. Basket weaving empowers these creative women with the opportunity to earn a vital second income.


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!
