Big Blue Moma baskets are purchased from a fair-trade collective in Ghana, West Africa. They are handmade and as such, size and shape may vary slightly from what is pictured. All baskets are woven by hand with elephant grass indigenous to the Bolgatanga area. Handles are covered with goat leather, reinforcing construction while also adding an extra level of comfort when carrying. Baskets often ship flat and may require reshaping when they arrive. To do so, dip them in water and shape them with your hands. This can be done once or twice a year to hydrate the grasses and tighten up the weave.
This basket is one of our more popular styles. It's single handle and wide mouth make it a great market basket, magazine storage or fruit basket. The black and white goat leather handle is the signature of the collective we buy from. Large Round Bolga Baskets are approximately 15 inches x 11 inches not including the handle and fold for easy shipping. This particular model is designed for storage over shopping.
