Our extra large market basket is the largest version of our Bolga market baskets. It is round with a single goat skin handle, and is 18" in diameter and about 10" deep, excluding the handle. This basket is often used as a laundry basket, farmer's market tote, or for storing toys, linens, and other household items. We like it for camping and for road trips, as it can hold a substantial amount of goods, and stands up well to heavy use.
The price shown is for a single basket. If you order this basket we will ship you the exact one seen in the image. Only one is available.
Our beautiful Bolga baskets are made in the Bolgatanga region of Northern 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 made entirely from sustainable resources, and their production has a minimal impact on the environment. The villagers have made these baskets for generations to store and carry food, and they now export enough to provide income to about 10,000 weavers.
About the brand: African Market Baskets is a small business located near Boulder, Colorado that works closely with weavers to ensure fair conditions and wages, as well as high quality products. It is a member of the Fair Trade Federation and Green America, and donates 10% of its profit to Every Basket Helps, a non-profit working to alleviate poverty in northern Ghana.
