Artisan Storage Basket - Beautiful and Functional

Gbenka is a Gurune word that refers to the sieve traditionally used to filter pito - a regional liquor brewed from millet. These original baskets were some of the first to be woven in the Upper East Region of Ghana - a symbol of Ghanaian hospitality and coming together in community to celebrate.

Honouring local basket traditions and creating contemporary forms with the oldest craft in the world is what we do best at The Baba Tree.

The weaver of this Baba Tree creation will receive a 7.5% commission on the retail price in addition to what they were paid upon completion.

Weaver: Harrison Akubire 
Measurements: Width 18", Height 11.5"
