BIG BLUE MOMMA SHOULDER SHOPPER NATURAL
This two handled basket was designed for the western market and is considered in Ghana to be a more modern style of Bolga basket. It is a perfect market basket with a wide mouth and deep bottom, it holds-well-a lot of stuff! It measures approximately 13 inches at it's tallest and approximately 18 inches at it's widest (really, we mean approximately). The elephant grass is dyed in rustic pots over a wood burning fire and the over the shoulder long handles are sewn by the men who are employed by the collective.
All Big Blue Moma baskets are made by hand and as such, size and shape may vary slight from what is pictured.
Most Big Blue Moma Baskets ship flat and may require reshaping when they arrive. To do this dip them in water and shape them with your hands.
As conscious business partners, we deal directly with the basket weavers. Artisans are paid fair market prices for their products to ensure they earn a living wage for their talents and time. This has had a positive impact not just on the craftspeople, but on the entire community, allowing it to sustain its traditions while creating new sources of economic growth.
