These impressive baskets come from Ghana and are traditionally made by hand. Due to the material used - elephant grass - they are particularly stable and robust.
This masterpiece is named after the giant nests, "ayeratukko", built by very small birds in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
The incredibly talented weavers in Ghana are paid fairly and receive a commission for each basket sold. In this way, traditional local craftsmanship is not only preserved, but also sustainably promoted.

All products are original, unique and handmade. No two items are exactly alike and because of this there may be variations in colour, size and condition.
Water does not harm the basket. In fact, you can reshape the basket by submerging it completely in water and letting it dry in the sun. Small shipping dents can be fixed by submerging the basket in water and reshaping it.
