Each of these baskets impresses with its beauty and size, and constitutes a unique creation (no two are alike!). Made over several weeks of hand work in Bolgatanga, Ghana, by master artisans who use a traditional technique to weave the grass “elephant grass” and their particular rhythm and flow, each piece comes directly from the hands of these artisan weavers and They are a reflection of her character: energetic, colorful, determined.
