Simple and striking example of the Ghanian U Shopper basket.   Handwoven in Ghana, a striking design in yellow, blue and natural tones and leather handle.  Referred to as 'U' shape baskets because of their distinctive high sides, they are deal for picking up a few items from the shops, taking to the beach or heading out on picnics.  They would even make a decorative and useful storage solution for wool and craft accessories.  

Size: Medium and measures approx: 25cm high excluding handles and 37cm wide at highest point.  

Why choose these baskets?

Natural:   Woven from the indigenous Veta Vera grass, also called elephant grass because of its strength, that grows naturally and found in abundance around the villages of Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana.  

Handmade: continuing time honoured techniques, weavers cut down, hand dye the grass before drying it in the hot Ghanian sun.  The grass is split and woven into beautiful designs.  Finally the handles are attached.  Some use decorative leather, others not, whatever the design this stage is only carried out by experienced weavers, making sure your basket is robust for the ups and downs of every day life.    

Supporting Communities:  demand for these beautiful baskets is increasing.  Exports are a valued source of supplementary income that help to support the villages and families of Northern Ghana.      

Unique:  each basket is one-of-a-kind.  From the shape, to the striking use of colour and pattern, you know you are buying something special that will become your new 'basket for life'.
