Dugla Basket by Akolgo "Body" Atiah
Art Basket - Exclusive to the Baba Tree
Dugla means 'clay pot' in Gurune, the local language in Bolgatanga in Ghana's Upper East Region. Dugla is a small pot-like container that is used locally to store Shea butte.
he Dugla basket was born from our admiration of the intricate processes we observe as part of the daily life of the Gurunsi people who live across Bolgatanga. The rituals involved in the making of Shea butter reflect community, culture, and age-old traditions. This is our culture of baskets!
An art sculpture in its own right, alternatively the Dugla basket is also the perfect woven vessel for your foliage finds from the garden and fresh flowers. Insert a glass jar into the neck of the vase, sit it on the base of the basket, and voila you have yourself a woven vase.
