During visits to Bolgatanga, Ghana, we were inspired by the angular-like structure of the mud-cladden homes in some of the communities we visited. Rural spaces have often been overlooked as spaces of beauty, peace, and tranquility, especially if modern amenities are not present.
*The Asanka, an earthenware dish, (from the Akan ethnic community from the Ashanti region) is a traditional Ghanaian grinding pot that is usually made out of clay with ridges and is commonly referred to as a traditional blender.
The Asanka Cowry was a unique collaboration between us, a master weaver and a local carpenter in our design workshop in Accra, Ghana. Both carpenter and master weaver have been submerged within the craftmanship sector since childhood and learned their respective skillset by their fathers and community members.
IN YOUR HOME
The intricately crafted home décor item will be the topic of discussion at any dinner party and elevate the décor aesthetic of just about any room. Highlights as a centerpiece or feature on your original brick fireplace as a real focal point.
Ofuntu wood - a soft, sustainable, heirloom wood that has been harvested responsibly from well-managed forests that are continuously replenished and ensure that there is no damage to the surrounding environment, or to native flora.
Elephant grass - a finely-split, sustainably sourced, durable fiber harvested from living sources that can be regenerated at the same rate as they are used.
We partner responsibily
We craft and design your baskets in partnership with intergenerational artisans in Ghana. We believe in durable items that will last for years- not only physically but aesthetically.
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.
We offer traceable, worldwide express shipping on all products. Delivery time will be communicated when we receive acknowledgment of your order.
A pre-order is an paid order before production begins and usually occurs for new product releases or when items are sold out. All products are crafted within 5-14 days with you in mind. This helps to ensure that inventory corresponds to the market demand & does not contribute to wasted raw materials.
