These beautiful Moses Baskets make the perfect gift for baby with bold patterns and colours on a natural sisal base. Its carry handles come in buttery-soft and sustainably-sourced goat’s leather.
Usually the weavers have been taught the age-old art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers. Agricultural work is the mainstay of most weavers’ family incomes, but drought makes life extremely challenging and basket weaving brings women and men the opportunity to earn a valuable second income. Each Moses basket takes around three days to weave, using veta vera grass (also known as ‘elephant grass’) which grows wild in Ghana and is remarkably sturdy when woven.
Please note, as this is a handmade product, dimensions & colour may vary from those shown in the photographs.
