These beautiful, original decorative woven vessels, are a unique and unusual way to add texture and colour into you home. They make wonderful gifts for friends and family.
You may be wondering where the unusual name comes from, here's the story, in the words of Gregory MacCarthy founder of the Baba Tree Basket Company:
"Jemima Akologo was working on the ''Jemima 10 Cows'' design (as it came to be known).
In Bolgatanga, Ghana, when a marriage takes place, part of the dowry is two cows. In the midst of the workshop I jokingly asked Jemima how many cows it would take should I propose to her. With a sly look she said ''10 Cows'' which brought the house down with laughter from the rest of the Baba Tree crew. At least she knows her worth!!!
Sagely, she rejected my proposal outright.
Thus, we have the ''Jemima 10 Cows'' basket.
She was the first to weave this particular style offered up by the Baba Tree."
The Artisan weavers that produce these and the other beautiful Bolga baskets I sell are paid fairly for there wares. Baba Tree baskets are revolutionising the basket weaving industry in the Bolgatanga region of Northern Ghana ensuring a fair price is paid for these beautiful items made from all natural materials and improving the lives of the weavers and there families.
Made from the local elephant grass they are beautiful, practical and sustainable.
Each basket comes with a care card.
