The Baba Tree Basket Company

Founded by Gregory MacCarthy, The Baba Tree Basket Company has been preserving the culture of local basket traditions and the Gurunsi community in Bolgatanga for the last 15 years. Today, the fair-trade company employs around 600 artisan weavers, who practice a time-honoured weaving technique using elephant grass and their very own ‘rhythm and flow’. Each basket comes directly from the hands of the artisan weavers and is slowly and thoughtfully developed to be useful, beautiful and ethical.
