Practical as well as beautiful, our Market Baskets are made to be used.

Great for weekend strolls through the farmers market, packing the essentials to the beach, or storing your favorite items, these one-of-a-kind baskets are something you will love to use as well as show off!

Each Ansah Co. basket is handwoven with Kinkahe straw (also known as Elephant Grass) by skilled weavers in Bolgatanga - a northern region of Ghana. Made using techniques that have been perfected over generations, our baskets are durable and flexible; each handle is covered with goatskin leather to make it stronger and more comfortable to carry.

Apart from the leather handle, our baskets are 100% biodegradable as well as ethically sourced and made. Ansah Co. strongly believes in a system where all are paid fairly; we work directly with artisans in Bolgatanga to ensure they receive a fair and living wage.

This basket arrives folded from shipping but don’t worry - it can quickly be reshaped using water and your bare hands ( your order will include detailed instructions on how to reshape your Ansah Co. basket ).
