This extra-extra large storage Bolga basket with a lid is 16" to 17" in diameter and 10" deep. Part of our Bolga Basket Collection, it's ideal for stashing yarn, laundry, hats and a multitude of other items. Each one comes with a hang tag with information about fair trade Bolga baskets as well as a care card. This basket contains no leather and is a vegan product. To clean or re-shape a Bolga basket, soak it in water, clean and shape it as needed (use mild soap only), and allow it to air dry. You should wet the basket about once a year to hydrate the straw and keep it supple.
The price shown is for an individual basket. Only one is available.
Our beautiful Bolga baskets are made in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana in West Africa, and are fair trade products. Bolga baskets are among the best known African baskets because of their versatility and durability. They are woven from local veta vera grass, and the dyes are produced from local minerals and vegetation. The basket export industry is a critical source of income for the Bolgatanga farming communities, especially when harvests are poor. Bolga baskets are also sustainable products, and their production has a minimal impact on the environment.
