These colorful 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.
Yoomelingah Yuri means "curved pot". Each luscious curve is the handprint or signature of the weaver who handcrafted the basket. We celebrate the unique differences in each and every basket piece of 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.

All products are original, unique and handmade. No two items are exactly alike and because of this there may be variations in color, 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.
