    THE TECHNIQUE

    Many of the artisans we work with at The Little Market use weaving techniques to create beautiful handmade baskets and bags. In the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, West Africa, artisans weave beautiful and durable baskets from thick, tough elephant grass. Basket weaving around Bolgatanga in Upper East Region serves as an example of the craft skills of women in the north, and each colorful basket can take up to a week to finish.

    The process begins by harvesting tall elephant grass from local fields. The straw is bundled together, then dipped into boiling water and natural dye to gain it its vibrant color. The weaver selects the proper pieces of grass for each part of the basket, then weaves from the bottom up. Finally, an artisan applies a tightly wrapped leather handle to finish the piece. A classic icon of African craftsmanship, Bolga baskets from Ghana are known for their durability, unique patterns, and vibrant colors.

    About The Country

    Senegal

    Senegal has a vast and diverse culture dating back centuries. Music and dance play a crucial role, and typical traditional music such as Yela, the rhythms of which mimic the sound of grain being pounded by female villagers, is still practiced by many Senegalese. Senegal is also famous for the quality of its jewelry. Local artisans sell their intricately crafted gold and silver jewelry in regional markets all over the country, and the large amber necklaces traditionally worn by Fulani women are a common sight.
