Handcrafted Bolga Baskets

FROM OUR HANDS TO YOURS

In small communities, far away from the retail stores that so many of us take for granted, people have learned over hundreds of years to be resourceful and creative. Each basket is carefully crafted by hand to be simple, beautiful, yet functional.

COMPLETELY UNIQUE

The colors are inspired by the women who make them, so each basket is completely unique and crafted for you.

COMMUNITY IMPACT

Every time you purchase from Baraka you have a direct impact on the women, families, and communities in northern Ghana. Not only does your order provide the dignity of income to hardworking women but enables us to support the Bolgatanga communities with modern training, quality control and microcredit facilities.

Traditional & Fair-Trade

They are Hand Made in small communities, far away from the fashions and retail outlets that so many of us take for granted, people have learned over hundreds of years to be resourceful and creative. And you would be hard-pushed to find a more striking and valued example than the Bolga Basket.

Designed to work hard and still look beautiful, these baskets are like all the very best inventions - simple yet incredibly effective, both as convenience tools and objects to admire in their own right.

RESHAPING YOUR BASKET

  1. Dip the basket in cold water for 1 minute. 

  2. Remove from water and let it absorb the moisture for 5 minutes. 

  3. Bend the basket to reshape and allow it to dry.

WHY CHOOSE BARAKA

Handcrafted by women in Ghana using age-old techniques passed down through generations. Centuries of practice has taught them how to extract every bit of goodness from the shea nut, and that quality is now passed on in every package of shea butter and all the products made from it.

    A beautiful and functional way to support the amazing women of Ghana!

    Each basket is completely unique and crafted with care. I now own one of almost every style available, since they can be used for a variety of purposes and are a beautiful way to store household items when not in use!

    I love all shape, size and form, color, smell and design. Lasting for a long time and re-functioning baskets that are broken into holding containers for multi purpose items.

    In a time of uncertainty, I wish for all the women nothing but love and prosperity with food on their table for their family and children who I hope may have a normal life without hunger and most importantly, good health
