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 hand-woven 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.
Measures approximately 10-12 inches across the bottom, and approximately 9-10 inches tall plus the handle, and the lip is approximately 7.5-8.5 inches.
The basket is washable and collapsible.
No two baskets are identical. Each basket is a unique piece of functional art.
Color combinations will vary and may contain a bright pop of color.
Baskets are shipped flat and require reshaping. Completely wet the basket in a bathtub or a large utility sink. Once it is saturated, shape it to 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!
