Makoura Baskets

Makoura Baskets

These baskets are from the Bolgatanga region of Ghana, they are traditionally used for carrying goods to and from the market. Weavers in the region use the abundant Veta vera grass to weave these durable, useful and beautiful baskets. The leather wrapped handle adds to the durability. Makoura work closely with the basket makers to introduce new designs an twists on the traditional Bolga basket.

Makoura introduced our new  basket design during the African Exhibiton at Newcastle Art Centre, the feedback from visitors was overwhelmingly positive. This success encourage us to sell our designs online. Our range of African baskets can also bee seen in person at Cafe Bahia, Linthorpe Road, Middlesbrough TS1 4AW.
