The Classic Maa basket is a Bolga staple. Its a basket that but the unique weaving craft of Bolga on the map. My grandmother tirelessly wove this very shape in order to afford the education of my mother and her siblings.
This is a Bolga classic we had to include in our range and a homage to my 'Maa', an incredible woman who change the trajectory of our family though her craft, skill and creativity.
This is the baby version, this magenta navy check is mesmerizing, a colour combo that is timeless but unexpected. The uses for this basket are endless, use as a centre piece, fruit storage, hideaway for kids toys etc...
Your basket is lovingly handwoven from Elephant Grass by our team in Ghana, each one of these Baby Maa baskets take a minimum of three days work in which our expert weavers split and twist each strand of straw before mixing and dying the straw with water based dyes and meticulously weaving our round baskets.
Made from Elephant Grass and water based, non toxic dyes. Basket dimensions: H 14cm Top width: 22 cm
Our products are handcrafted, therefor variation of shape or size may happen.
Dust your woven basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary. No other cleaning should be necessary. If your basket is stored in direct sunlight for a prolonged amount of time the colour will fade.
