Scaled down in size to fit children’s bikes and scooters, the YENDI bike basket features blue, turquoise and orange/red geometric designs and is supplied with two leather buckle brackets for attaching to handles. Veta vera grass (also known as ‘elephant grass’) grows wild in Ghana and produces very sturdy carriers – it’s what our moses baskets are made from, too!
Our Ghanaian bike 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.
Our bicycle baskets each tell an important story about collaboration and sustainable living. To become an owner of one of our woven baskets is to become a part of our journey, directly supporting the weavers in becoming less dependent on the unpredictable nature of self-sufficiency farming.
Each mini bicycle basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative that made yours. Want to know more about the people behind the baskets? Meet the weavers here.
