Original unique Fair Trade Bolga baskets woven by Ghanaian women on Danish Fair Trade terms.

Use it for knitting, newspapers, empty bottles, shopping, toilet paper or all possible other good things.

A Bolga basket is made of elephant grass and is the result of a long process and an ancient, traditional craft. Bolga baskets are always hand-woven and have leather handles, assembled into a handle.

The majority of the producers are vulnerable women who can neither read nor write and who primarily live by selling baskets. The area where the baskets are produced, Bolgatanga in northern Ghana, is characterized by extreme poverty.

There are Danish designers and artisans during the process, so the look and style are adapted to the Danish market.
