These amazing baskets come from Ghana and are traditionally made by hand.
Due to the material used - elephant grass - the baskets are particularly stable and robust.
Katayeli-tia (conch) ... or the snail basket, as it is affectionately known.
It took Kwame 3 ½ weeks to create this exclusive conch shell shaped basket and we are amazed by its beauty and multi-dimensionality. Honoring local wicker traditions and creating contemporary shapes, that's art!
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.
