The beautiful Bolga Pot design market basket is also called the Gambigo basket. It is handwoven out of elephant grass from Bolga, Ghana. The baskets are made in small villages using traditions passed down from generation to generation. The leather is treated using an all-natural process (either dyed and oiled or painted). Each basket is 100% unique! Variations are to be expected and treasured. Baskets are sturdy, strong, and flexible. If properly cared for, your basket will live a long life. The pot design is much more difficult to weave than the round market baskets, and truly showcases the weaving skills of the artisans.

  • Pot style basket measures approximately 10 inches across and approximately 17 inches tall to top of handle.
  • The basket is washable and collapsible.
  • No two baskets are identical. Each one is a unique piece of functional art.
  • Color schemes will vary and may contain a bright pop of color.
  • Baskets are shipped flat and require reshaping. Completely wet the basket in your bathtub or a large utility sink. Once it is saturated, shape it, putting something heavy in it to hold the shape you want, and let it dry.

Basket Care and Instructions:

  • Baskets are shipped flat and require reshaping. Completely wet the basket in your bathtub or a large utility sink. Once it is saturated, shape it, putting something heavy in it to hold the shape you want, and let it dry.
  • Cleaning: It is OK to get your basket wet. If your basket gets dirty, use a little gentle soap and scrub gently. If the leather gets dirty, clean with a gentle leather soap. Be sure to let your basket dry thoroughly after it gets wet to prevent mold- in the sun is ideal. Enjoy your basket for many years to come!
