HANDCRAFTED in Ghana

Amene Cowry Shell Basket

STORY

Handcrafted using traditional weaving techniques, this stunning basket makes a great choice whether it is used to gift wine baskets during any holiday or as a storage basket throughout the year.

Each row of African cowry shells is carefully woven within the elephant grass in a clockwise direction. The base of the basket features a border Weave that provides standing structure to ensure premium durability and lasting quality. 

The Amene Cowry basket is made by a woman weaver in our design workshop in Accra, Ghana, who has learned handweaving skillset from her mother. Ancestral weaving skills have been passed forward from generation to generation.

Handwoven from elephant grass, a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this basket takes roughly 4 days to complete.

    Product Care

    Extend the life of your Woven Worldwide product with our after-care advice.

    Care

    Repeated contact with water will cause the appearance of 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.
