Minimalist and versatile, this beautiful small Rectangular Storage Basket was designed by The Basket Room and handcrafted in Ghana.
With a natural, geometric pattern inspired by local designs, this basket provides a vibrant and stylish space saving design. Robust enough to store kindling and magazines, the basket would also serve as stylish nursery storage for toys and books.
Hand-woven by skilled craftswomen in Ghana, this Rectangular Storage Basket has been crafted using a wild-growing Ghanaian grass called veta vera. Also known as a bolga basket, each basket takes up to three days to create in a complicated process that involves the grass being collected and split by hand, then rolled and dyed before skilled weavers can begin their work.
A craft as old as mankind, basket weaving inspired Camilla and Holly to found The Basket Room and support local weavers. In supporting these communities in Rwanda, Ghana, Kenya and Swaziland, the workers benefit from fair wages, dignified working conditions and the ability to work alongside their other roles.
Please note: Due to the handcrafted nature of these baskets, no two are the same
