This tiny "Bolga basket" is the baby variant of the traditional picnic basket. This one too has a leather handle made from goat.
The basket is made in the Bolgatanga area in northern Ghana. Most of the producers are women and the basket weaving helps to support them. The so called elephant grass, that is used, grows on the hillsides along the rivers.
