The story

The Bolga basket is a traditional, handmade product from Ghana. It is made from elephant grass that is smooth and sturdy. Making a basket takes almost a whole week. Every basket has a piece of Ghanaian heart and soul.

This model stands out not only for its cheerful colors but also for its special name: Traditionally, 2 cows are asked as dowry in Bolgatanga. Jemima Akologo, however, wanted 10 cows, and she happened to be the first woman to make this type of basket ..... Now all these baskets are called Jemima 10 cows ....

Ideal as a storage basket, or just to brighten up your interior with some color.

Enjoy life ...
