The Happy Elephant provides gorgeous, colourful and unique baskets that have been handmade in Ghana, Africa. Available in a range of shapes and sizes at an affordable price.
Typically knows as Bolga Baskets, they are woven by a group of woman in Bolgatanga using local Elephant Grass (Vetivar Grass) that grows along the river banks. The grass is dried, split, twisted and then woven using traditional skills passed down from generations.
All the baskets sold are fair trade and a portion of the proceeds from every sale goes back to the woman groups in the form of clothing, shoes, medical supplies and books for children.
