    Add a touch of Africa to your decor with our charming 3-piece traditional tribal baskets. Handmade in Ghana, each basket is woven from Boliga straw by members of the Boliga tribe in northern Ghana.

    Product Features:
    • Fun bright colors
    • Hand-woven from Boliga straw
    • Set of three (3) baskets
    • Each measures approximately 14 inches high x 17 inches in diameter

    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.

    What is Worldstock?

    The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? NO, THEY WERE DIFFERENT BUT VERY COLORFUL SELECTION.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. NICE QUALITY, EVEN A LEATHER HANDLE ON ONE BASKET.
    • How accurate was the sizing? OK

  • 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.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? No
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. poor

  • Wonderful

    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
    • How accurate was the sizing? good

  • 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.

  • Gorgeous colors!

    These are just lovely! The colors are so vibrant, and varied. They are exactly what I thought they would be. I highly recommend these baskets they are well made and beautiful! Be aware that you may probably have to reshape your baskets. I'm going to give mine a good spraying with water and reshape them as they are misshaped from the shipping process. Just a FYI so you don't freak out when you pull them out of the box :-)!

  • nice baskets

    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

  • 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.

    • 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
    • How accurate was the sizing? Right on

  • Beyond Awesome

    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.
