Using a basket is eco-friendly, reducing the need for plastic shopping bags and other unnecessary packaging.
Weavers of northern Ghana produce the best quality african baskets.
These baskets are ethically traded and money paid for the baskets goes directly into the hands of the weavers, enriching their lives and ours.
What to do with a basket:
Take it shopping, fill it with groceries, flowers and, of course, yarn
Bake bread, wrap it in a tea towel and carry it to a friend
Transport a home-baked pieâthe flat bottom of the round basket works beautifully for pies
Give it to the cat for a bed
Let your toddler sit in it or fill it with toys
Submerge it in a tub full of water to reshape
When it eventually wears out (which may take a very long time), put it in the compost to recycle back to the earth.
