Mondo Round Basket- 16"-Elephant Grass (Ghana)
In the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, West Africa, artisans weave iconic storage baskets and shopping totes from natural fiber. The making of one single basket is an extensive process. It stretches from selecting, preparing and dying the straw to the weaving process that can take up from 2 to 5 days. For example, it takes about 25,000 knots to weave a finely woven 16" round basket. This durable round 16 inch basket made from elephant grass can be rinsed clean with cool water and reshaped when needed.
