Our Bolga baskets are handmade in small communities using traditional methods. The women gather together to make the baskets to earn extra income to support their children and families. Each basket is completely unique and handcrafted just for you so the colors may vary.

A popular shopping basket that some even use as an open purse.  It's very beautiful, practical and has so many uses like hauling in pickings from the garden and orchard, organizing projects and even a decorative base for large plants.

 A unique, hand-woven creation made by artists, the colors vary and may not be as shown.
