This handwoven Bolga storage basket is round and open at the top. It is made from elephant grass and is about 16" in diameter and about 9" deep. Use it for storing linens, toys, kindling, yarn...you name it. To clean or shape it, simply wet it with cool water, clean and shape it as needed, and allow it to air dry. Store it away from direct sunlight to keep the color vivid.
If you order this basket, we will ship the exact one seen in the image. Only one is available.
We sometimes ship our Bolga baskets flattened to save on shipping costs, and if so we'll include shaping instructions. It's quick and easy!
