This market basket is perfect shopping baskets and I say so because of the feedback from customers. It is not only for carrying your essentials but can be used for storage and decorative purposes.
This African straw basket also called Bolga basket is handwoven from elephant grass and dyed. It makes a great eco-friendly and serve as a source of income to the women who weave these bolga baskets.
One great thing about this basket is, it’s sustainable. It is durable, soft, and can be used as many times as you wish and for multiple things, you can think of. It can be used as hamper, for a picnic, storing things as mentioned earlier but make a great present as well.

The baskets may arrive out of shape or bent but don’t panic. All you need to do is put water on it, reshape or mold it back to how it should be, and leave it to dry. Once dry it is good to use. You can equally clean stains off it with water and a cloth.
Trim any extra straws you see sticking out with scissors. It is not unusual because they are handwoven.
