Made by Ghanaian artisans with the Bolgatanga technique.

The ascentral Bolgatanga technique consists of weaving baskets, carrycots, bags and other objects by hand using elephant grass, also known as "elephant grass". This grass is collected, dried in the sun and then dyed with natural dyes obtained from local plants and minerals before being woven. Artisans use skill and patience to intertwine the fibers and create beautiful patterns and unique designs.
