  • Description

    Made with natural undyed straw and recycled vintage indigo, these beautiful baskets are 100% organic. 

    Indigo shawls are traditionally made in West Africa from locally grown cotton which is handspun and dyed with vegetable dye to achieve a deep blue colour. The shawls are then carefully worn over many years. That means this recycled fabric is probably 30-40 years old, which creates gorgeous variations and shades of blue seen in this unique basket.

    Hand-woven with love by female weaving cooperative in Bolgatanga area, Northern Ghana.

    All our baskets are fair trade and every purchase provides meaningful income to the makers.

    Size approx. h 24 cm, dia 24 cm.

    • Each basket is one of a kind
    • Handcrafted with love
    • Eco-friendly and Vegan
    • Made in Ghana
