African Market Baskets
Elephant grass grows surrounding waterholes in the Sahel region of West Africa. The strong slender leaves are harvested seasonally by the Fra Fra people of Northern Ghana, then soaked and stretched to produce a fine, supple, and extra strong fibre. Your purchase of this items helps to maintain the time-honoured craft of weaving, while continuing a long-existing fari trade relationship with these people.
Each basket is unique in pattern and colour, please contact the store for the latest styles.
