All of our Bolga baskets are handwoven in the Bolgatanga region of Northern Ghana in West Africa, and purchased using fair trade practices. When you purchase one, you receive a beautiful and practical item while helping a family in Ghana raise their standard of living. Bolga baskets are among the best-known African baskets because of their durability and beauty. Because they are made from sustainable grass, goat skin, and natural dyes, they are environmentally friendly products. To clean or re-shape one, simply wet it with cool water, shape or clean as needed (using mild soap only), and allow it to air dry. The colors won't bleed into each other and the weave will actually get tighter and more durable. Wetting your basket about once a year will keep the straw supple and extend the life of the product.
