Two Handled Round Large, Traditional
A two handled version of our most popular shape this is the perfect addition to your basket collection and an excellent storage solution This basket is one of our more popular styles but the two handled option is new for us. I love this for firewood, mittens and hats by the front door or knitting by your favourite chair. The black and white goat leather handle is the signature of the collective we buy from. The elephant grass is dyed in rustic pots over a wood burning fire and the handles are sewn by the men who are employed by the collective. All baskets are woven by hand in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana, West Africa. Handles are covered with goat leather reinforcing it's construction while also adding an extra level of comfort when carrying a full load. Large Round Bolga Baskets are approximately 18 inches x 18 inches x 11 inches high not including the handles and fold for easy shipping. The majority of African baskets are shipped flat and can be easily reshaped by submerging in water. Maintain your Ghana basket by submerging it fully once or twice a year to hydrate the grasses and tighten up the weave. These baskets are a longstanding tradition in Ghana and you will be amazed at their durability as well as their stylish appearance. All Big Blue Moma baskets are made by hand and as such, size and shape may vary slight from what is pictured. Most Big Blue Moma Baskets ship flat and may require reshaping when they arrive. To do this dip them in water and shape them with your hands.
