THE BASKET ROOM Natural Woven Shopping Basket


Meet the BUSUNU collection - our newest African shopping baskets, ethically and sustainably handwoven in Northern Ghana. 

These carry-handle market baskets come in three handy sizes and are produced in the Bolgatanga area of Ghana. All are made from veta vera grass which grows wild locally and is incredibly robust when woven - a stylish and sustainable alternative to plastic.

Most of the weavers who produce these woven basket bags are men, having been taught the art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers.  Most of these men are farmers first and foremost, but the dry seasons make it increasingly difficult to make a reliable income from the land. Basket weaving brings these people the opportunity to earn a flexible second income. 

It is our mission to build relationships with the most talented weavers across Africa, and we’re glad to be offering more work to these weavers as our Ghanaian collection expands to include these fair trade market baskets
