Mondo Nyariga Basket - Large-Elephant Grass (Ghana)
The large baskets are made by men and women of the Gurunsi tribe, also known as the Fra Fra people in Bolgatanga, Ghana. These baskets are woven from straw from a type of ‘veta vera’ grass, commonly referred to as "elephant grass". The baskets have handles reinforced with leather made from goat hide and makes it ideal as market baskets. You can use them as a shopping basket, picnic basket, laundry basket, a place for your newspapers and books, for collecting eggs and harvesting in your garden. Or simply as an amazing work of art in your living or bedroom.
