small brim bolga hat
bolga basket-weaving is a quintessential Ghanaian craft hailing from the country’s northern Bolgatanga region, where artisans use local elephant grass to create handwoven bolga baskets. to start, the artisans soak the grass in water and then twist the strands together in small bunches to make them more durable. at this point, the artisans either hand-dye the grass or start weaving, beginning at the base of the basket and working their way up to the rim. the baskets are then topped with a handle, which we often accent with sustainable cow leather.
