We are offering some Awesome discounts for the Autumn. This price cut is mainly geared towards retailers, shops, organizations and markets that are ordering a substantial number of baskets.
This has been a crazy year. Besides the mortality and morbidity from the virus, lock-downs, closures, restrictions have greatly impacted many businesses. The Bolga basket market has not been left out as weaving almost ground to a halt between the months of March-July after the first infections were recorded in Ghana.
For us, our weaving center was closed as we value the life and safety of our women. We also had to install hand-washing stations and equip weavers with masks and hand sanitizers. The few weavers that continued at the time, had to weave from home and drop in a safe spot for collection.
In September, most restrictions were lifted as the virus had largely been curtailed nationwide. While this is great news, we continue to adhere to laid down Health guidelines including social distancing, washing of hands and wearing of masks in public.
Now we are back in action, with the women eager to weave both catalog as well as custom based baskets.

Why Bolga Baskets
Baskets are trendy this year. Big storage baskets are making a hit. Moses baskets are the in-thing for new babies and the market baskets remain a customer favorite. People really love the Bolga baskets because of their resilience, strength and the intricacy of weaving. To push their appeal further, the vibrancy of the colors and the insane designs the women craft just makes them perfect both indoor and outdoor use. In fact, it’s like Rattan and palm leaves got a bit jealous this year.
It’s pretty clear that this trend will last for the next couple of years. So, you are assured that any of our Bolga baskets that you put up in your shop will be gobbled up. Fast! With the holidays coming, demand for these beauties will definitely soar.

How are they made
All our baskets are all handcrafted in Bolgatanga from the finest of straw. The straw is derived from various species of the Panic grass (Panicum maximum), commonly referred to as Elephant grass. These straw are split in half and twisted from one length to the other. They are subsequently dyed and then timestakingly woven into the basket of choice.
Our weavers are gifted with the Midas touch. Every straw they touch turns into basket gold. We value them and beyond paying very generously, we have a mix of social projects aimed at improving their lives and wellbeing. We place focus on Health, Adult literacy, Microfinance, Agriculture and Alternative livelihoods. Our upcoming website www.bolgatangabaskets.org will serve as the online portal to show you the impact we are making in the lives of the weavers and their communities. Feel free to contact us if you are interested in collaborating.
