- Coming from Yikene village, in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, these baskets are traditionally used for carrying goods to and from the market. This is the Yikene interpretation of the regular two-handled shopping basket.

- Dimensions are approximate, but we do strive to get the measurements accurate within 1/2 inch. Please review the size of this item carefully using a ruler or tape measure before your purchase. See our Shopping FAQs for more information.
