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.

WHY CHOOSE BARAKA

Handcrafted by women in Ghana using age-old techniques passed down through generations. Centuries of practice has taught them how to extract every bit of goodness from the shea nut, and that quality is now passed on in every package of shea butter and all the products made from it.

    Beautiful and Ethical multi-functional baskets

    We absolutely love our Baraka Bolga Baskets. Use them in the garden for gathering harvest, we use them in the the house for storing things and for taking to the farmer's market to load up for the week. Love that they are handmade and fairly traded and have such a beautiful esthetic as well

    Beautiful and practical baskets of joy!

    Excellent products! The cocoa smelled absolutely divine, I wanted to eat it! And the coconut oil made me feel like I was on a luxurious tropical retreat. This company has such a high quality product and I respect their business model and ethics. Consider me a repeat customer!

    Love love love my Baraka Bolga Baskets!

    I can't imagine my life without my Baraka bolga baskets. They have become staples for family life -- for shopping, beach combing, Easter egg collecting, halloweening, canoeing, camping not to mention the most attractive and inspiring way to sort clothing, children's toys, scarves, socks .... small baskets for the grandchildren, baby basonette's for the new borns, big baskets for laundry or linen storage. Just like books, you can never have too many. And each one is unique. I feel a connection to the maker of each basket and I am quite certain that the love and attention to details and color that went into the making of each basket adds to my life and helps to melt the borders between us ... thank you Gifty and Wayne for being the bridge between our worlds. In summary, I love my Baraka Bolga Baskets -- I have more than a dozen already and look forward to adding to my collection.

    Baraka Bolga Baskets Are Versitile and Beautiful.

    These baskets are beautiful, unique and artistically pleasing. They add colour and are asthetically pleasing where ever they are used, whether for shopping, collecting produce, holding winter hats and scarves or crafting supplies. You can feel the love and care with which they were created.

    A beautiful and functional way to support the amazing women of Ghana!

    Each basket is completely unique and crafted with care. I now own one of almost every style available, since they can be used for a variety of purposes and are a beautiful way to store household items when not in use!

    I love all shape, size and form, color, smell and design. Lasting for a long time and re-functioning baskets that are broken into holding containers for multi purpose items.
