Ethically produced using natural materials. The stylish, minimalist design makes it an excellent addition to any room. The handles are ergonomic for a comfortable hold. The material is lightweight, allowing you to carry it with ease.

Handwoven by expert artisans in Ghana with the indigenous veta vera plant, making it hard-wearing and a once-in-a-lifetime purchase. Crafted using traditional techniques which have been passed down through the generations, preserving cultural methods.

Our continuous partnership with the incredible Ghanaian artisans ensures a consistent income for many families within the wonderful community. No two baskets are the same, making yours completely original.


Our woven baskets and fans from Ghana are made by a talented group of artisans based in the Upper East Region, under the Burkina Fasso border. The baskets are made with indigenous veta vera which grows abundantly in this hot, dry area. The co-operative we have partnered with is led by Agana, who works closely with the weavers.
