These baby baskets are handmade in Ghana - they are double woven for strength and durability, made from sun dried elephant grass and coloured with traditional plant dyes and non-toxic fabric dyes. In store we have a range of baskets in different colours and patterns
- Size - approx 79cm long x 40cm wide
Ethical Commitment - These baskets are ethically created in Bolgatanga, Ghana - the process of harvesting, drying and dyeing the grass then designing and weaving the baskets includes men, women and their children. This empowers the artisans while preserving the traditional craft & their skills, and contributes to a sustainable development of ancient practices in the villages. The baskets are made from sun-dried elephant grass and coloured with traditional plant dyes for the natural coloured designs, and non-toxic dyes for those baskets with brighter colours.
Please note - As each basket is hand woven, these are a one of a kind item. Measurements may differ slightly from what is listed and colours may show up differently on a screen.
Safety - This basket is not a carrying basket and babies should be removed prior to moving it around. It is suitable for babies who are unable to sit up or roll over. Please ensure if you are using a mattress to line the basket, that it is snug fitting. This basket is to be placed on a firm and flat surface, with handles facing outwards if your baby is inside.
Bedding - Please also note this Moses Basket does not come with a mattress. We are happy to make recommendations to where you are able to find a mattress for your basket or you could use a natural sheepskin to line the bottom.
