This practical basket has 2 long straps that sit on the shoulder and leather closure across the center of the bag. Perfect for everyday use instead of your usual handbag, it will fit all your everyday items and a few extra bits as well.
These handwoven unique baskets are made with dried elephant grass in various colours and brown or black leather strapped handles.
Elephant grass grows surrounding water holes in the Sahel region of west Africa.
The strong slender leaves are harvested seasonally by the Fra Fra people of northern Ghana, then soaked and stretched to produce a fine supple and extra strong fibre.
Your purchase of this item helps to maintain the time- honoured craft of weaving, while continuing a long-existing fair trade relationship with these people.
