Each deluxe basket in our collection is made from the elephant grass which grows in the rich flood plains of the White Volta near the village of Bolgatanga, Northern Ghana. We love that women artsians, working in family & village co-operatives, hand-weave each basket using traditional techniques handed down from generation to generation. Non-profit Africa Heartwood Project supports the sustainable livelihoods of cultural artisans in developing countries by providing training, investment, and access to global markets.
