Kenkia Basket #2

Regular price €295

Kenkia is a word in Gurune, the local language of the Gurunsi who live in and around Bolgatanga in the Upper East region of Ghana. Kenkia is a large gourd that was traditionally used to carry water.

A masterpiece of weaving, this bulbous basket is difficult to make despite its simple design. It takes a skilled craftsman to master the proportions so elegantly.
