Product Overview

"Our Deluxe Large Colorful Shopping African Basket from Africa Heartwood Project is custom designed by the artist herself with any variety of beautiful geometric patterns in assorted colors. Each is unique, like the woman who made it! We call it our "Shopping" bag because it is has two swinging handles and is perfect for holding a variety of items as it expands width, similar to grocery bag, This is the larger size, measuring about 18-20" long, 12-13" wide, 14-15" tall, plus the 6"" handle for 21"" approximate total height. The large 20"" size is suitable for use in carrying a higher volume of a variety of items that don't require a flat base (like the round basket), and the U-shaped high-wall design keeps items from falling out as the contents add up. Because this basket doesn't stay open while at rest it is less suitable for displaying items in a fixed location. They're each equipped with durable, soft leather handles.

Each deluxe basket in our collection is made from the elephant grass which grows in the rich flood plains of the White Volta near the village of Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana. We love that women artsians, working in family & village co-operatives, hand-weave each basket using traditional techniques handed down from generation to generation. Non-profit Africa Heartwood Project supports the sustainable livelihoods of cultural artisans in developing countries by providing training, investment, and access to global markets.

To save you money this woven basket arrives flat-packed, reducing storage and shipping costs. Reshape by simply spraying or immersing in water, shaking off excess water, hand shaping while wet, then allowing to air dry. 5 minutes of basket love and your done! We include a care and shaping guide to help you keep your basket looking its best.

Every basket is hand-made & unique, but trust that YOUR basket will closely match the written description & representative photos in this listing."

    Fantastic basket

    I ordered this to collect the vegetables from my vegetable garden. It has enough space and is washable if it gets soil in it. It is very light to carry, sturdy and has a beautiful design. This is much better than any basket made by a machine.
