Woven African Baskets for Shopping & Decor

The Baba Tree Basket Co. offers unique, hand woven African baskets that are beautiful and functional. Our baskets are made from straw, goat leather and dye and woven in Bolgatanga, Ghana by the Baba Tree's incredible artisan weavers.
This unique handwoven basket is called "TAPOH" - which means 'bag' in the Gurune language and it is exclusive to the Baba Tree.
This is not an easy basket to weave. The Baba Tree had a go at producing these baskets years ago but we became busy with other designs.
This is a marvellous light duty basket one can use as they sashay through town on a quest for a few avos, some limes and the latest edition of your favourite mag.
The weaver of your Tapoh will receive 20% of the retail price as a commission on top of what they were initially paid upon completion of their basket.
In the photos, the weaver holding each basket is the weaver that created it.
