Bolga Shoulder Bag with leather wrapped handle

 

You will receive the exact bag pictured.

 

This Bolga basket was handwoven by our Ghanaian family of artisans from "Elephant Grass" (straw). Weavers from Bolgatanga in Ghana, Africa are highly respected across the world for their craftsmanship of these baskets.

The elephant grass is harvested, soaked in water, and twisted into detailed patterns with various colors. Each artisan uniquely designs the style and color of each basket made to perfection.

 

FAMILY IMPACT

Artisans use their earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children. Your purchase helps with continued generational change and empowers our family in Bolgatanga, Ghana to preserve a cultural heritage hundreds of years old.

 

COMPLETELY DISTINCTIVE

Please note that since each basket is handcrafted, no two baskets are alike. Colors, sizes, and patterns will vary. You will have a "one of a kind"!
