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

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 involved in the process, so that the look and style are adapted to the Danish market.

Colors and motifs vary and are determined by the local women. The pictures are examples of what the traditional baskets look like. Feel free to call or write for more pictures.
