Handwoven in Northern Ghana, West Africa.
Tightly woven by Swahili African Modern's most experienced weaver, the totes can stand up to years of usage while still remaining beautiful.
The weaving of "market baskets" in Ghana has been a traditional skill for many generations. Because the soil around Bolgatanga is not fertile enough to sustain agriculture, the people of the region rely upon handicraft products to supplement their income. The Bolga baskets sold by Swahili Modern are Fair Trade and are a reliable source of income for women weavers and their families.
Fair trade and ethically produced.
