Let the adventure begin
The explorer basket is perfect for heading out on an adventure and is well suited to carrying an assortment of found treasures such as leaves, flowers, stones and shells.
Also great for shopping at farmers markets as well as endless games at home.
Our range of beautiful Bashiri baskets are hand crafted by local artisans in the West African region of Ghana and surrounds. The art of basket weaving is a familial craft, handed down from one generation to the next.
The raw material - elephant grass, from which they are made grows abundantly in the floodplains of Bolgatanga in Northern Ghana and is a 100% sustainable, natural material.
Fully malleable and easy to reshape, simply immerse in water for a few minutes and adjust while wet. A care and shaping guide is included to keep your basket looking its best.
