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. The Trashy baskets use recyceld textiles. 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 two handled basket was designed for the western market and is considered in Ghana to be a more modern style of Bolga basket. It is a perfect market basket with a wide mouth and deep bottom, it holds-well-a lot of stuff! It measures approximately 13 inches at it's tallest and approximately 18 inches at it's widest (really, we mean approximately).
