About Your Basket
Elephant grass grows abundantly in the Bolgatanga region in Ghana, West Africa. The grass is seasonally harvested by the Fra Fra people. The grass is then boiled and dried before weavers process and weaves the baskets which can take up to 7 days.
Purchasing these hats & baskets from Ghana help honour and preserve the traditional craft of weaving while maintaining a long term fair trade relationship with the weavers.
