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.

  • Fantastic

    Great baskets, wish they hadn't been so squished in the box but still fixable.

  • burly baskets

    I have owned identical baskets for over 15 years using them to go back and forth to our boats kept on moorings in Newport. You can put groceries, bottles of wine, engine parts whatever in them. They are well constructed and meant to be used. I like just looking at them onboard they are not obnoxious and going home they hold any leftovers, laundry, etc. just as easily. They are perfect for squishing into any area. They do not topple over, just roll a bit.

  • straw bags

    These are very nice straw bags. Don't be concerned when they arrive all folded, bent and kattywampus. There are instructions to wet and reshape them. It really does work and not hard to do. I hung them in the garage damp, with a weight in the bottom so that the shape would take. I am using them for magazines, yarn, and crafts. The baskets are lovely, but probably expensive in the long run.

  • Average

    Kinda disappointed in these baskets. Although the material is great, I just can't get them to hold their shape, despite several dunkings in water and stuffing with rags until they dry. Thought they would be good in our office where we have groups travel to foreign countries for missions; however, I just don't know what to do with these as they always looks like they are falling over.

  • Very nice...and quite colorful...

    These baskets are very well made and colorful. All three are certainly worth the value and more. I would recommend them to anyone looking for colorful, sturdy, multi purpose baskets. These baskets would add a wonderful splash of color to any room.

  • 3 straw handmade baskets with handles, lovely

    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!

  • 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.

  • SCRUNCHY

    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.

  • NICE BASKETS

    I LIKED THE BASKETS AND COLORS BUT, THEY ARE STILL A LITTLE MISSHAPEN, CAN'T SEEM TO FORM THEM THE WAY I WANT TO EVEN AFTER WETTING THEM AS DIRECTED TO. STILL PRICE IS FAIR.

  • Bent and smell terrible

    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.
