In Ghana's northern Bolgatanga region, talented basket weavers know exactly what to do to transform a stiff stalk of grass grown in the south into gorgeous baskets loved around the world. To create these brilliant rainbow baskets, artisans dye the strands in an array of colors before weaving. The all-natural handles can be personalized with colorful cloth, leather or ribbon for extra reinforcement.
Please note, Bolga baskets are typically crafted with soft goatskin binding the handles. Without leather binding, handles are not as strong.
NOTE: You can shape your basket by wetting the straw and shaping the basket with your hands, then allowing it to dry.
