This fair trade Gambibgo pot basket is striking and durable. It is bulb-shaped with an open top and a sturdy flexible leather handle. This beautiful African basket is approximately 14" in diameter at the bottom, narrowing to 12" at the top. It is approximately 11" deep, not including the handle. It serves well as a tote or for storing household items. 

We sometimes ship our Bolga baskets flattened to save on shipping costs, and if so we'll include shaping instructions. It's quick and easy!

We will ship the exact basket that you see in the image. As it is a unique item, only one is available.

To clean or re-shape your Bolga basket, simply wet it with cool water, clean and shape it as needed (use mild soap only and avoid wetting the leather), and allow it to air dry.

Gambibgo pot baskets are crafted in the Gambibgo community, near Bolgatanga in Ghana. They are woven from abundant local elephant grass, and the handles are made from goat skin.
