The Basket Room - Akan bike basket


Beautiful hand woven baskets from Ghana
£69.00

A beautifully hand woven bike basket, designed in house by The Basket Room. The AKAN bicycle basket boasts a wide turquoise stripe around its rim.

Each basket is woven by a weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana from wild veta vera grass, each bike basket takes around three days to weave once this grass is split, rolled by hand, and dyed in boiling water.

Each bike basket is supplied with two dark brown leather straps, as seen in photo. These simply slot through the basket and fasten around your handlebars. 

Material:  VETA VERA GRASS & LEATHER

Aprox Dimensions: W35cm x D25cm x H25cm (baskets can vary in size slightly due to being handmade)

These unique and colourful hand woven baskets have won our hearts and will add a touch of uniqueness to any bike.

Each bike basket takes up to three days to weave by hand, and is made from wild veta vera – also known as Elephant Grass. This indigenous grass is harvested, split, hand-rolled and dyed before a skilled weaver from a weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana sets to work.

By purchasing any of The Basket Room hand-woven baskets you become part of this narrative, directly supporting the weavers in becoming less dependent on the unpredictable nature of self-sufficiency farming.

Each bicycle basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative that made yours. Want to know more about the people behind the baskets? Meet the weavers here
