Artisans in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana weave these beautiful and durable baskets from thick, tough elephant grass which are either left natural or dyed with mineral and non toxic fabric dyes. These high quality baskets have a fixed leather handle for carrying comfort and an open top for accessibility.  They are the perfect eco-friendly, sustainable option for your little babes. Safe for our planet, safe for your children. 

This beautiful item is fairly made in Africa and each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own community.  These baskets help to support the local weavers and their families by ensuring a stable income which helps them to care, educate and provide for their family. 

Your basket will include a wooden Wander + Wild branding disc and attached shaping instructions for you to follow at home. 


+ Sized at approximately 19cm wide and 14cm high (excluding handle) however sizes will vary as they are individually made.    

Please Note: Due to the handwoven nature of the baskets, sizes may differ slightly and the item may have characteristic blemishes on either the base or the handle which add to their unique authenticity. No two baskets are the same.
