Handcrafted in small batches, using traditional weaving techniques, this cowrie shell woven basket makes a great choice whether it is used to gift wine baskets during any holiday or as a woven storage basket throughout the year. Our Cowrie Shell Woven Baskets are crafted using a single weave method that celebrates the authentic reed, reflective of the beauty of nature. 

Each cowrie shells is carefully woven within the elephant grass in a clockwise direction. The base of the woven basket features a counter-clockwise bordered weave that provides structure to ensure lasting quality. 

This handcrafted woven basket was produced in our design workshop in Accra, Ghana, who has learned handweaving skillset from matriarchs in the community. Ancestral weaving skills have been passed forward from generation to generation.

Handcrafted using elephant grass, a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this woven basket takes roughly 4 days to complete.

      Unique Qualities

      Due to the nature of handcrafted assembly, each product is crafted with a slight variance in dimension. Grass colour may not be identical throughout product due to the nature of hand craftsmanship when the grass was harvested. Imperfections in elephant grass are a part of their nature and should be celebrated.
