The Oye Tray has been crafted with the authentic reed, reflective of nature’s natural state. Practical for extra-wide surfaces that make items easy to move.  Our tray is a great solution to keep a coffee table organized or serve breakfast in bed.

Each handcrafted tray is made by a woman master weaver in Bolgatanga, Ghana, who has learned this skillset from her mother and other matriarchal figures in the community, during her childhood.  Handwoven from a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this tray takes roughly 3 days to complete.

      Production

      Working from a modest workshop in their home, or in our design studio, a husband of 3 spends Mon-Thur days handcrafting baskets just like these for Woven Worldwide.

      Every twisted weave, each interlocked cowrie shell is carefully crafted with high-quality and thoughtfulness.

      Adokrey, the artisan that weaved this basket learned much of the trade from his father and uncles during his childhood.

      care

      Your Woven Worldwide item will maintain its handcrafted qualities if it is not directly exposed to damp or wet environments and is stored inside its cloth case when not in use. Repeated contact with water will cause the appearance of the reed in 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.

        High-quality Craftsmanship

        Sustainable Design

        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.

        Unique, Raw Materials

        Because of the nature of elephant grass, each woven basket may have a slight variation in reed colour. This is determined by when the grass was harvested, woven, and how long it was allowed to dry in the sun. The gradients of reeds range from pale green to beige to mustard yellow. This is not an inconsistency. This gradient is a natural feature that should be appreciated.

        Women-Led Value Chain

        We are dedicated to developing our products in the most environmentally friendly manner possible. We collaborate with Lizzy, a matriach weaver and farmer who harvests elephant grass from living sources that can be replenished at the same rate as they are depleted.
