A bold and functional, this paipay is spectacular hung on the wall as wall art, both only and combined with other decorative pieces.

The material used to weave in Bolgatanga is the elephant grass, which only grows in the southern part of Ghana, in Kumasi. Herbs are harvested and dried, a process that can take up to three days. Then they are tied in large packages and transported to the Bolga markets. This is where most weavers buy their raw materials.

These pieces have been made and dyed with organic dyes by groups of women from communities in the Bolgatanga region, in an environment of fair and ethical trade, thanks to All Across Africa, a certified company in fair trade by the Nest Seal of Transparency.

All products are handmade with love and with 100% natural and ecological materials. They can vary slightly in size, shape and color, but they are 100% original and unique!

Instructions for use:

  • Cleaning: Do not immerse in water, if necessary, use a damp cloth to clean, and avoid the use of chemical or detergents.
  • Sun: Because the fibers are natural, keep the products dyed out of direct sunlight for long periods of time to avoid natural discoloration.
