Product information “Bolga Bag – Taifa – Many Colors – U-Shape”
Known and loved far beyond the borders of Ghana: the Bolga Bag! The practical basket bag is extremely robust, durable and water-repellent! But also as a storage basket for magazines, wool, blankets, firewood, etc., the Bolga Bag makes a very good decorative accessory, especially in the living room. Fancy a picnic? No problem! Plates, cups, snacks and a blanket also fit in the bag. The hand-woven bolgas come from the city of Bolgatanga in the dry north-east of Ghana. The traditional braiding of elephant grass is often the only source of income for the mostly female braiders. Due to the drought, agricultural yields in this region are very scarce. Many residents have already migrated south to the cocoa plantations.
By buying this basket bag you support the female weavers from Bolgatanga!
