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.

    I bought these baskets years ago and use them for everything from going to the famers market to storing items at home. Easy to reshape. I get compliments on them all the time. Great Purchase!

    These are great baskets at a great price even though they have gone up in cost over the years. For those who are frustrated by their misshapen appearance, here is a simple YouTube video that demonstrates how to reshape them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2c_1J2y4WA

  • 3 straw handmade baskets with handles, lovely
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    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.

    Verified Purchase

    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
    Verified Purchase

    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.
