Market baskets are made to withstand heavy usage in the bustling open markets of Ghana. Each basket takes between 3 - 5 days to make.
The beauty of these baskets is that because they are handmade, there are no exact copies. They have a rustic appearance ( not a “perfect” look of machine made ones) which to add to the charm of a totally unique, handmade, rustic item.
Handwoven by women artisans in the rural town of Bolgatanga.
