Oval Market Basket - AWOFIO

Regular price £35.00
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

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.
