Hand Woven Apana Bicycle Basket

£45.00

SPECIAL PRICE £45 (RRP £57)

The Apana bicycle basket is handwoven in Northern Ghana and fairly traded.  It is finished with two leather straps to attach to your bike.

Woven from the wild veta vera grass, each basket goes through a detailed process from harvesting, rolling, dyeing and finally weaving. Dyes are natural, often extracted from tree barks and vegetables. Buying this basket directly supports the weavers to increase their livelihoods and become less dependent on self-sufficiency farming, which is very unreliable during the dry seasons.

Dimensions: W35cm x H25cm (approx)

Please note, as dyes are natural, colours may fade over time. If your basket gets wet, simply leave it to dry naturally and re-shape. As each basket is individually handmade, some variation in size and colour may occur.
