Most weavers in the Northern Ghana cooperative are agricultural workers, though relying on a season’s rainfall makes for unpredictable living. Basket weaving – one of the oldest crafts known to man – has become a source of alterative income for these communities in the dry seasons, helping families to meet their basic living costs more comfortably. When you buy one of our beautiful woven bicycle baskets you become a part of this story.
