WAVY baskets from Ghana
Bolgatonga , located in north- eastern Ghana, is well known for its colorful and patterned baskets made from elephant grass.
Recently, lack of international demand, have significantly decreased prices and quality.
Working along with craftsmen, we give back value to these traditional techniques by designing new shapes and shaking color’s ranges.
We will showcase our new collection at the next MAISON&OBJET fair which is mostly composed of natural-colored baskets. This nest will welcome your favorite objects and treasures.
Our iconic basket is the « wavy » one. Its shell’ shape requires long and hard work to artisans who have to face failures.
We have challenged the workshop by asking a giant wavy version. They made it just wonderful; measuring nearly 1 meter in diameter.
As a tribute to handicrafts and straw material, we will also exhibit a furry basket which fiber loose-ends are going wild.
