The Basket Room - Huntuma Moses Basket - Black/Natural
Handwoven in Northern Ghana, this beautiful baby bassinet features striking black stripes and tribal-inspired blocks on a natural elephant grass base. Its matching black carry handles come in buttery-soft and sustainably-sourced goat's leather.
The majority of these weavers are men having been taught the age-old art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers. Agricultural work is the mainstay of most weavers' family incomes, but poor rainfall and drought makes life extremely challenging. Basket weaving, and producing these exquisite woven Moses baskets, brings women and men the opportunity to earn a valuable second income.
Each Moses basket takes around three days to weave, using veta vera grass (also known as -elephant grass-) which grows wild in Ghana and is remarkably sturdy when woven. These Ghanaian Moses baskets are the perfect napping space for new arrivals.
