    Ex  Large: 16  1/2" diameter by  9" tall without handle height. Color:  Green, blue and purple.  The rim on this basket does have some wave to it-every basket is handmade so there will be some variations in each basket.   This is our new no leather market basket.  We have made a detachable handle cover/grip to make carrying the basket more comfortable.  The cover is made out of duck cloth material, sewn locally.  This is a specialty basket. 
     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.
