Bolga Floor Baskets

Easy 30 Day Returns

A blend of function and beauty, these floor baskets are part works of art and part multi-tasker. Each one is made from elephant grass that’s native to Ghana, and the size alone makes it incredibly luxurious. Stash blankets, toys, books inside – anything to help create a sense of calm and order in your home.

Handwoven by a cooperative of artisans in the remote region of Bolgatanga, Ghana, each basket undergoes a meticulous 8-step process that takes up to a day to complete. Exclusively made in a fair trade working environment.

Note: Due to the handwoven nature of these baskets, expect some variation in size, shape, and color.

I have purchased 12 of these

These baskets made me develop a basket problem. I use them to store my dog’s toys, my 100+ record collection, laundry, and blankets next to my couch. They are sturdy, beautifully made, and the perfect shade of yellow/natural that has warmth without looking fake. I did have an issue with one basket which looked like it was unraveling in some areas, but the Citzenry customer support team helped me address it right away. I’m a big fan of these baskets and this company. There are so many options for buying designer home goods, but this is the place I can know I’ll get great service, beautiful products, and be putting my money in the hands of global artisans who deserve it.

Rough weave

I was disappointed to find the basket is much more orange in tone than shown in the photos. The weave is very rough. There are dozens of points sticking out of the basket from top to bottom, all the way around. These are like sharp little sticks pointing out of the weave. I wouldn't dare store a blanket in this basket. The Citizenry imposes a $25 restocking fee to take back an item that is not as advertised. All in, a disappointing experience this time. I own 5 other baskets from the Citizenry, and the others were great.


The Citizenry

Hi Michelle, We're so sorry for the frustration you experienced and we appreciate you giving us another chance to make this right. Each piece is handmade from elephant grass that’s native to Ghana so we do our best to note that they will have slight variations in sizing, shape, and color. However, we are disappointed to hear that the condition of your basket did not meet these expectations. We do incur a restocking fee for the returns for a refund, but exchanges and returns for store credit are completely free! We would love to know if there is anything else we can do to help. Our team at are looking forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
