“Standing on your own two feet thanks to elephant grass baskets”
The Ghanaian baskets are made in the dorm pen around Bolgatanga, a city in the northeast of the country. These baskets are known for being beautiful, durable and versatile. They are made from thick and sturdy elephant grass, the favorite food of elephants. The Ghanaians dye this grass in vibrant colors that reflect the energy and enthusiasm of the inhabitants.
By selling the baskets, many poor farmers from the Bolgatanga region of Ghana were able to build a sustainable way of life.
