These impressive 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.
The Woman & Man Basket is unique: Its two heads symbolize the unique interconnectedness between woman and man. Madame 1000 was the creator of this basket. And she stated very clearly and forcefully that "woman" should come first in the title.
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.
