Story Behind the Art: Nana was born to a family of nine children in the town of Kumasi in Ghana, West Africa. His parents divorced when he was only 8 years old and Nana became so rebellious that his mother sent him to live with his father in Tamale (in the Northern region of Ghana) when Nana was 12 years old. It was there that he developed an interest in art. He dropped out of school when he was 14 and started training with a master carver in Tamale. In 2000 Nana began selling his products through Worldstock. Nana is now married with three children and lives in Accra, Ghana. He is now a master carver with his own shop and 10 employees.

Boy was I happy when I opened the box of baskets! These lovely handmade baskets were all different patterns and colorful too, which is exactly what I wanted. I had seen these baskets at a fiber fair selling for $35 each and was happy to see that I could purchase 3 baskets for less, which allows me to give away a basket as a gift. They will come in useful for my yarn and knitting to carry to a retreat or weekly group event. They shaped easily also. I just sprinkled them with water, baskets only avoiding the handles and worked the body a bit, they dried firm and nicely shapen, thanks Overstock for providing a great product reasonably priced. At first I found them on yoru site but they were out of stock, I signed up for the reminder email when restocked and within a week or so was notified they were available and ordered them, thanks so much, I am very happy with my purchase, my friends also commented on how nice they are and I shared with them they came from Overstock!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes the color variations were similar to the advertising picture
Please tell us about the quality of the product. consistent and very nicely made and proportionate
How accurate was the sizing? ample sizing as described, two very large size baskets and one slightly smaller
These ghanian baskets are beautifully constructed with beautiful colors and a durable leather wrapped handle. They arrived on time and in great shape. NOTE: during shipping the baskets can arrive slightly smushed down. This is not a problem. Simply wet them and let them dry and they spring back to their original shape. I plan to buy more of these baskets as gifts for friends.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The colors are great. Expect a variety. I did not receive a green one like in the display pic. These baskets were primarily red, navy, golden brown, light brown. Enough of a color mix to essentially be neutral for most decor.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. excellent
Like many, I have been coveting these baskets at my local healthfood market for years. They charge almost the same price for one basket that Overstock charges for 3! I finally came looking for them here as I really wanted to give one to a friend as a wedding gift and one to my mother for her birthday. I was so pleased to find them here for a steal!
They did come smooshed into a box, but the beauty of these baskets is their ability to be molded into whatever shape you need them to be. I am tickled pink to have three beautiful (and all large) baskets- two to give away and one to keep!
I ordered two sets of the Tribal Baskets. They are wonderful! Each one is different (none are green). I already had one Tribal Basket purchased elsewhere and these are just the same. Excellent quality, designs, size, etc.
WOW!! These are BIG baskets and they are absolutely gorgeous!They are bigger and more attractive than I had invisioned. They did require some hand shaping due to the shipping method, but just dampen them and mold them as you like.
I had bought similar baskets in a local non profit store that were nicer, better color, higher quality reeds. But these baskets on OS were fine and a good buy for the money. I purchased them as gifts for my sister and daughters, and they were really happy with them!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? somewhat more faded
Please tell us about the quality of the product. okay
These would be much more impressive if they could be boxed and shipped in a way that didn't render them completely squished together and misshapen on arrival. It is months later now, and they still are out of shape and look like they were run over by a bus.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? All are vibrant and pretty; they come in a variety of shades.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good craftsmanship, sturdy
These smelled like gasoline and the colors I received looked cheap by comparison to photos - too bright. You will get whatever they send, not what you see in the picture (in terms of pattern and color). The baskets I received were very misshapen. I sent them back immediately.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No
Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor
These baskets are one of the best things I bought on Overstock. The quality is exceptional. The colors (3 different) are all great, the leather on handles nice touch. The size is nice. It is true you have to shape them a bit right out of the box but it is easy. Cannot say enough how great these are - have seen similar at other stores for three times the price. Honestly love these.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? accurate
Please tell us about the quality of the product. great
