Bolga Market Basket ( M5008) Large
Large: 15" diameter by 9 1/2" tall without handle height.
Color: Violet, lime, aqua and peach/soft orange. There is a darker black area underneath the handle. It cannot be seen unless you turn the basket over. It was the way the leather was tanned. We did discount the basket to reflect that area.
These baskets are made by the skilled weavers of Bolgatanga (Bolga for short), Ghana, Western Africa. They take the local grass called elephant grass to make this basket. The leather handle is braided adding to its beauty. This basket is strong and very durable. It can be hosed down if dirty or needs reshaping. Instructions included. Great for the market, holding newspapers and magazines, towels in the bathroom, unlimited uses. This is the basket you will receive.
