Item details

Handmade item


Straw, Leather

This one-of-a-kind handwoven Bolga bag is made of Kinkahe Grass.

The weavers who create these baskets are mainly subsistence farmers in the Bolgatanga region of Northern Ghana. They often use their weaving income to send their children to school. Harvesting the center stalk of the tall Kinkahe grass, which quickly replenishes itself with new growth, results in a sustainable straw for the future.

To shape your basket quickly, wet with water (keeping the leather handle and sides dry), and reshape by hand. Then allow to dry.*

Country of Origin: Ghana
Material: Kinkahe Straw, Leather
Dimensions: W 16" X H 11.5" X D 4", Handle 4.5" X 6"
