The Basket Room - Apana bike basket


A beautiful hand woven basket made in Ghana
£69.00

This unique bike basket, designed by The Basket Room, features turquoise and fuchsia patterning against natural grass, and is oblong-shaped.

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

Material:  VETA VERA GRASS & LEATHER

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

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. 

We're always on the lookout for new chic products to brighten up your bike and motivate you to keep cycling, so when we found these gorgeous bike baskets from The Basket Room we fell in love!

This bicycle basket is roomy enough for your textbooks and stationery, and can be attached to the rear of your bicycle as a chic pannier if preferred. A most versatile storage solution, the APANA can also be fastened to cot rails as pretty nursery storage, and can store toiletries, flannels and towels on a bathroom rail.

Each basket is hand woven in Northern Ghana from sustainable materials and helps sustain generations of craftsmanship. The Basket Room is dedicated to supporting the weavers in a truly fair and reliable trade, supplying a regular source of income to help farming communities whose primary income – agriculture and livestock – can be perilously unpredictable and reliant on rainfall.
