Description

The U-shopper basket is the perfect tote, beach bag, shopper, everyday bag, or home decor basket.  The beautiful bolga baskets are hand-woven in small villages of Ghana, a tradition passed down from generation to generation. They are woven out of renewable resources, including banana leaf and elephant grass, which grow abundantly in the region. Each basket is hand woven and 100% unique! The leather handle is treated using an all-natural process (either dyed and oiled or painted). Note that handle colors will vary and may range from black to an oiled red color.  Variations are to be expected and treasured. Baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life.

Details

  • Large U-Shopper basket measures approx 16-18 inches across and 11-13" deep.

  • The basket is washable and collapsible.

  • No two are identical.

  • Colors will vary and may contain a bright pop of color. Enjoy your unique one-of-a kind design.

  • Shopper baskets are shipped flat and may require reshaping. To reshape, completely wet the basket in your bathtub or a large utility sink. Once it is saturated, shape it, putting something heavy in it to hold the shape you want, and let it dry.

* Due to the artisanal nature of this product, color and size may vary.

THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Gitzelli

Country: Ghana

"The Gitzelli artisans work in Kenya and Ghana to weave beautiful, traditional baskets in many designs and colors. Artisans live in low income areas and make their living off selling their crafts or taking daily temporary labor for minimum wage. In Kenya, the artisans come from wide parts of the country. Most weavers come from the Eastern region where the climate is dry and conducive to the production of the sisal -- this is their main source of income. In Central Kenya, most artisans have small pieces of land where they practice subsistence farming. They subsidize their income through weaving products with banana leaf. Gitzelli Imports has helped connect these artisans to bigger markets and enhance their low income."

Bolga totes

I have quite a few of these totes made in Ghana in all sizes. The small size I use for collecting my eggs and the medium to large sizes I use for carrying my crochet projects and also spring the projects that I am working on. They are great to have.

Better than expected

This is a wonderful basket. Well made, very strong and holds everything! I bought it to use when I go to the Farmers markets. I was amazed at how much I could continue to put into the basket and still have room. It worked so well that my sister got jealous after seeing me with it a few times - so I bought one for her! She loves it as much as I do.
