Bolga baskets are made using traditional weaving techniques in the northern region of Ghana. The veta vera, or elephant grass, grows abundantly here and is a sustainable material, picked from the tip, leaving the root to continue to grow.
The latest collection features simple tones, from golden wheats to ocean blues, woven in contrast to the natural veta vera grass. Inky blues, almost black, show the intricacy of the Artisans' weaving, in beautiful varied patterns. Each pattern represents the individual skills of the Weaver, passed on and developed through the generations.
