Our Bolga baskets are handmade in small communities using traditional methods. The women gather together to make the baskets to earn extra income to support their children and families. Each basket is completely unique and handcrafted just for you so the colors may vary.

A unique and versatile work of art.  Use it for storing fruits and veggies.  Use it as decoration and, at the same time for storing items so they are easily accessible but not adding to clutter. 

Great for gifts and many uses around the home and craft centre.

Handcrafted Bolga Baskets

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

In small communities, far away from the retail stores that so many of us take for granted, people have learned over hundreds of years to be resourceful and creative. Each basket is carefully crafted by hand to be simple, beautiful, yet functional.

COMPLETELY UNIQUE

The colors are inspired by the women who make them, so each basket is completely unique and crafted for you.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase from Baraka you have a direct impact on the women, families, and communities in northern Ghana. Not only does your order provide the dignity of income to hardworking women but enables us to support the Bolgatanga communities with modern training, quality control and microcredit facilities.

Traditional & Fair-Trade

They are Hand Made in small communities, far away from the fashions and retail outlets that so many of us take for granted, people have learned over hundreds of years to be resourceful and creative. And you would be hard-pushed to find a more striking and valued example than the Bolga Basket.

Designed to work hard and still look beautiful, these baskets are like all the very best inventions - simple yet incredibly effective, both as convenience tools and objects to admire in their own right.

RESHAPING YOUR BASKET

  1. Dip the basket in cold water for 1 minute. 

  2. Remove from water and let it absorb the moisture for 5 minutes. 

  3. Bend the basket to reshape and allow it to dry.

BASKET DIMENSIONS

A unique, hand-woven creation made by artists, the colors vary and may not be as shown.

Please treat dimensions as approximate only. Each basket is an individual work of art, made by hand and not to any pre-programmed size, using skills and techniques passed down through generations.

The actual size of the basket you get may be larger, or smaller than the dimensions indicated, depending on the feelings and circumstances of the artist who made it on the day it was made.

I have been buying these baskets for a few years now and am very thankful for the opportunity to help the community in some small way through the Fair Trade commitment. Plus, their products are of exceptional quality and very colorful. I was pleased also to learn that all I have to do is wet the baskets to reshape them and bring the color back out, very helpful information.
