BOLGA STRAW BASKETS:

Bolga Baskets are indigenous handmade crafts from the Bolgatanga District in the Upper East Region of Ghana. The crafts production serve as income generation venture for the Weavers to support their families economically. They are functional products woven in colorful designs and shapes for lifestyle uses. The baskets are in demand worldwide due to their aesthetic and unique qualities.

Production Process:

The baskets are made from elephant grass which grows wildly in savannah vegetations of Ghana. The straws from the grass are harvested and dried for a few days and then split into two halves and plaited into strands. The plaited straws are dyed into various colors and used to weave different shapes and sizes of baskets. Sometimes the handles are reinforced with tanned leather for strength and good feel in the hand when carried. Depending on its rigorous use the Bolga straw basket could last beyond five years; some customers testified that that they still have baskets they in 1990 (over 26 years)

Care & Handling:

The plaited materials used in weaving the baskets are very strong and flexible and these qualities make the basket able to carry sizeable weight of load. The most unique nature of the basket is , unlike other fibers, when they are deformed due to packing the shapes could be restored by spraying the affected parts with ordinary water. This unique nature, among others, makes the baskets a hot seller worldwide for over three decades.
