Product Information


The perfect gathering basket for the little loves in your life to take exploring on all of their memory making adventures.   Whether it be gathering foraged treasures, collecting eggs from the farm, hunting for Easter eggs or storing craft supplies - these baskets are the perfect accessory for any Little Explorer. 

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. 


Baskets arrive flat packed to help save on shipping costs however shaping your basket is easy and will only take you a few minutes.

Please ensure you check out our Basket Shaping + Care page for information on how to shape, care for and store your basket. 

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.

Sweetest, sturdiest basket to date! And a decent size!

Super easy to mould, just as the clear instructions state - literally taking a minute or two.

Beautiful colour and will totally tolerate the rough and tumbles of little wanderers.

The sweetest little basket

Perfect for my 6 year old to potter around our garden with.

Gorgeous Baskets

Beautiful baskets, strong and sturdy. Be mindful that they come in all shapes and sizes as I purchased two, one for each child and one was much bigger in both the handle and basket than the other.

Kristen Pope

The Perfect Little Basket

I purchased this basket for my daughter's 2nd birthday and she is obsessed (so am I)! The quality is incredible and it feels like it will last for many years.
I also must mention the beautiful and speedy service I received. I'll definitely be back for future gifts :)
