For many generations, weaving has been a traditional skill of the Gurune people of northern Ghana. Mostly done by women, basket weaving and other handicrafts supplement these subsistence farmers’ incomes.
These genuine Bolga baskets are exclusively woven by the indigenous Gurune people, around the town of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana.
Today I received my first order from Baskets of Africa. I love the baskets, the workmanship and quality of each handcrafted item. They are exquisite. I'm so glad that you are bringing such beauty from Africa to this country and that the artisans are appreciated. Additionally, your customer service is exceptional. Thank you for what you do!
Wanted to let you know that my basket order arrived - beautiful stuff, as usual. I always marvel at how they are nested and packed.
