Our handmade Swing Bolga Basket from the non-profit Blessing Basket Project makes a beautiful Easter basket that can later be used all year in pretend play or as a lunch/picnic basket, shopping basket, or storage basket for toys, craft supplies or nature treasures.
Fair trade made by local artisans in Ghana, West Africa, our Swing Bolga Basket features a wide, graceful shape made of native elephant grass dyed with natural plant dyes. The hinged "swing" handles are wrapped with leather for additional durability. These baskets are exceptionally strong and intended to be used for many years.
By purchasing our Swing Bolga Basket, you will also help empower families in Africa to thrive. The Blessing Basket Project ensures that artisans receive at least 2.5 times fair trade for their work, allowing them to start their own businesses and sustainably exit poverty. You can feel great about your purchase knowing that it has made a difference in the lives of children and women in Ghana.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Each basket is unique so the colors and pattens shown are example. Colors may be bright or muted. If you prefer a basket with no pink, please leave a comment when checking out.
