Steps in making Baraka Bolga Baskets

  • 1 min read

Traditional, handwoven Baraka Bolga Baskets are made with skills and techniques passed down through generations. Mothers and Aunts teach daughters and then they weave and work together.

In this video, Ahmed, the local coordinator, describes some of the steps as the women are weaving. They are working as they normally do, in a group under a shade tree in the searing heat at the edge of the Sahara. Basket weaving is hard work, but the women are happy to have the opportunity to earn money to support their families and educate their children
