Traditionally weaved for the functional use as a colander, these Woven Wavy Bowls are handcrafted by a small group of women weavers in Bolgatanga, Ghana.
The gentle, double-weaved wavering of the elephant grass, lends a contemporary touch, sure to capture the attention whether the bowl is used as a bread basket or for gift baskets.

Handcrafted by Titan basket weaving artisans in Ghana, brought to you by a woman-owned, small business in Toronto, Canada.
Your Woven Worldwide item will maintain its handcrafted qualities if it is not directly exposed to damp or wet environments. Repeated contact with water will cause the appearance of the reed in the woven product (whether it is in its authentic reed or pigmented) to experience discolouration. Prolonged pressure from heavy objects will cause the shape of the product to be distorted. It is best to limit the exposure of such elements to preserve the authentic look and feel of your product.
When using cosmetics, perfumes or any alcohol-based solutions such as hand sanitizers, please take time to be sure that they are dry on your skin before engaging with Woven Worldwide products.
There are sometimes tone variations in the colour of the reed and this is a natural feature due to when the grass was harvested. The basket's new home will most likely be in a climate other than the one in which it was made. The reed's tri-tone nature may appear in tones ranging from pale green to mustard to raw honey, which may age as it oxidizes in it's new home. This is also determined by the date the grass was harvested. This is a normal maturation process for straw; it is not a flaw or blemish.

Unique, Raw Materials
Due to the natural characteristics of elephant grass, each woven basket may have a slight variation in reed colour. When the grass was harvested, woven, and how long it was allowed to dry in the sun determine this. The natural reed gradient ranges from pale green to beige to mustard yellow. This gradient is a beautiful natural feature that should be admired.
Women-Led Value Chain
We are dedicated to developing our products in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. We collaborate with Lizzy, a matriarch weaver and farmer who harvests elephant grass from living sources that can be replenished at the same rate as they are depleted.
Designed for everyday use with functional dignity and durability. We purposefully design our pieces to be timeless. We believe in long-lasting items that are both physically and aesthetically pleasing, and we design products that are as timeless as they are stylish.
