Honey Pot Bolga Basket
Your Honey Pot was made by the people of Bolgotonga in Northern Ghana, Africa. It is made from Elephant Grass that grows endemic to the region. The manifacture of baskets can involve the whole family who help harvest, dry and dye the grass before it is woven into a desired shape and patterns. Sometimes the grass is purchased from market on the way home after selling other baskets at the markets.
Our baskets are bought directly from the people who made them and from the community markets. There are no factories involved.
