My favorite size Harvest Basket, these are so incredibly useful! Great for harvesting veggies, leafy greens, eggs, maybe some cut flowers and so much more! These would make an adorable market shopping basket as well. 

Bolgatanga is the largest town in the Upper East region of Ghana, about 20 miles South of the Burkina Faso border and very close to the edge of the Sahara Desert. The sun roasts the villages of northern Ghana year round, except during the 2-3 months of rainy season when it rains, rains, rains. The people living there are traditionally farmers and herdsman, but with its variable climate farming is very difficult. Local women supplement the family income by weaving the baskets we refer to as Bolga baskets which are hand-woven using locally-grown straw.

Basket weaving has helped bring much needed income to the villages surrounding Bolgatanga. The traditional skill which has been handed down from generation to generation provides employment to approximately 10,000 people, mostly women. An average of two baskets a week can be woven by a woman who also has household chores, firewood collection, water collection, washing and the care of her children to tend to each day.

Colors & patterns will vary from basket to baskets as they are uniquely & beautifully  hand crafted. 

Basket Dimensions: 11″- 14″ diameter x 7″- 9″ tall (not including the handle)

It’s to encourage every single person that they were called to do great things. And it’s to offer you beautiful, ethical goods that empower you to live a purpose-filled, intentional lifestyle in your kitchen and garden. 

I’ve never been so proud of the work I’ve done before, and I hope throughout our shop, you will feel inspired to grow your own food and cultivate your own self-sufficient, sustainable lifestyle.
