These amazing baskets come from Ghana and are traditionally made by hand. That usually means a week's work per basket!Due to the material used - elephant grass - the baskets are particularly stable and robust.
Dugla means "clay pot" in Gurune, the local language in Bolgatanga in Ghana's Upper East Region. This small container is used locally to store shea butter. The tall Dugla basket was born out of admiration for the everyday life of the Gurunsi who live throughout Bolgatanga. The rituals involved in making shea butter reflect community, culture and ancient traditions.
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.
