Our baskets are made in the rural villages of Bolgatanga (Bolga), Northern Ghana.

It is made out of  elephant grass. The Artisan weavers, are mostly women using centuries old traditions.

As "Real Traders", we work directly with the weavers, and by doing so, we ensure they are been paid fairly for their work.

With this opportunity, the Artisan weavers are able to provide a better standard of living for their family and at the same time preserving their cultural heritage and centuries old traditions.
