A must-have -- now available in new colours, sizes, and designs! For a plastic-free lifestyle or just a lifestyle that appreciates handmade, fair trade beauty and practicality. Take your basket shopping, to the beach or overnight at a friends.
The Oval basket is a double weave basket that is a market workhorse. It is the hardest basket for the weavers to weave owing to achieving a flat bottom using the double weave method. There is a very limited supply of these baskets as not a lot of weavers weave them.
The Baba Tree provides the highest quality woven baskets from Ghana. Baba Tree weavers are paid fairly, and the proceeds from the Baba Tree support entire communities in one of the poorest areas of the world. Not only are we sure that you will be buying one of the best baskets available, but we are also certain that your money will go to the weavers whose nimble hands created these gorgeous and functional works of art.
A note about colour: Baba Tree baskets come in a variety of colours. If you have certain colour desires, we can try (but not promise) to accommodate you. Just add a quick note in the comments section of your purchase to say, "I like green" or "Stripes make me happy" -- if we have time, we may even be able to send you a photo of our current stock so you can see exactly what you're getting (feel free to ask!). Otherwise leave your choice to fate/Gaia/us, and we will send you a surprise choice that we are sure you will love.
