About Baskets - African
Woven Baskets, Hats and Fans. Elephant grass grows surrounding waterholes in the Sahei 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 item helps to maintain the time-honoured craft of weaving, while continuing a long-existing fair trade relationship with these people. The baskets, hats and fans can be soaked in water and reshaped as desired.
