HANDCRAFTED in Ghana

Amene Cowry™ Shell Storage

STORY

With a warm honey hue, this basket makes a sustainable choice for storage by the sofa or anywhere in the home. Handcrafted using traditional weaving techniques, our stunning Amene Storage baskets are available in three sizes.

Each row of African cowry shells is connected into the elephant grass at a clockwise border 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 from her mother. Ancestral weaving skills have been passed forward from generation to generation. Handwoven from a sustainably sourced, durable fiber, this sculpture takes roughly 3 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.
