Rectangular African Basket
Approximately 12″ Across x 7″ Tall (plus handle) x 9″ Deep
Coming from the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, these baskets are traditionally used for picking foods from the garden. The rectangular shape is more difficult to weave than round. Weavers in the region use the abundant Veta vera grass to weave these incredibly hardy, useful baskets. The leather wrapped handle adds to the durability. Please note that if color looks black on your screen, it is actually a very, very dark blue. Easily reshape your basket by quickly submerging in water (keep leather dry), reshape by hand and let basket dry.
Although we attempt to ship all baskets fully shaped, some baskets may need a bit of shaping when they arrive to you. Shipments outside of the continental US or shipping via 2nd Day Air receive ‘flattened’ baskets. Each order comes with full basket shaping instructions and a full page of information about the baskets.
You receive this exact basket pictured above and we offer low shipping prices.
