This small African basket, also called a Bolga Market Basket, is a mini version of our popular market basket. It is round with a single leather handle and makes a charming child's basket, Easter basket, or gift basket. This mini market basket is 8"-9" in diameter and about 5" deep, excluding the handle. Each includes a hang tag with information about fair trade Bolga baskets as well as care instructions. You may select your basket from the images shown here, or choose the "We Choose, You Save" option and let us pick for you. When we select your basket, you save 10% while still getting the same quality basket as the ones shown in the images.

The price shown is for a single mini market basket. Each basket is unique, so there is only one available of each basket shown in an image.

To clean or re-shape a Bolga basket, simply wet it with cool water, clean and shape it as needed with your hands, and allow it to air dry. You should wet the basket about once a year to hydrate the straw and keep it supple. 

Bolga baskets are handcrafted in farming communities in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana in West Africa. They are are among the best known African baskets because of their versatility and durability. They are woven from elephant grass, the leather handles are made from goat skin, and the dyes are produced from local minerals and vegetation. The basket export industry is a critical source of income for the weavers, especially when harvests are poor. Bolga baskets are also sustainable products, and their production has a minimal impact on the environment. All of our Bolga baskets are sourced according to fair trade principles.

Please note that when multiple Bolga market baskets are ordered we may on occasion flatten them in order to minimize the number of parcels being shipped. If this happens, simply wet the baskets when you receive them, shape them, and allow them to air dry.

About the brand: African Market Baskets is a small business located in 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.
