NY - Totora Storage Basket

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.
