Banasco Basket

$55.00

A beautiful intricately woven little basket perfect to store your favourite treasures! From the tip of the handle  of the top to the base the basket is about 7″with the opening about 5.5″.  This basket has a very delicate colouring in pink, orange, green, brown and black.

These tiny baskets are exclusive to the Baba Tree and are not available anywhere else in the world. Funky Frog was lucky enough to get 3 during the 2020 Bead and Basket Hunt to bring home … the others sold before getting on the site!

These baskets are woven utilizing the delicate straw that is used for weaving the Baba Tree hats.  The straw used is a much finer straw than the straw used for weaving baskets and it is a straw that grows in and around the Bolgatanga area.

This basket was bought directly from the Baba Tree in Bolgatanga, Ghana during our 2020 Beads and Baskets Hunt. Should i order more???
