Traditionally woven by Ghanaian women, bolga baskets can be used to carry goods and other items. These baskets can be handmade and handwoven from natural materials such as grasses, palm leaves, bamboo strips, and sometimes dried banana plants. In Yoruba, "bolga" is "to carry".
For generations, the Ghanaian people have been weaving baskets from grasses and palm leaves. A couple of British missionaries introduced new weaving techniques that allowed them to improve their skills. They could improve their skills by using traditional techniques and inventing new designs.
The Bolga basket is now one of the most loved handmade baskets in Ghana thanks to this "basket revival". This also led to a new tradition in weaving, which has been passed down from generation to generation. It is now a treasured part of Ghanaian culture.
Bolga Baskets can be used for many reasons. These are just a few:
- These can be used to make gift baskets, food baskets, or even wedding decorations.
- A bolga can be used to transport fruits and vegetables all year round. They are also ideal for storing holiday decorations.
- They are also great for the kitchen. With just a few baskets, you can store potatoes, onions, and other items in one place.
- Homemade bolga cans are also possible to be used in home decor. These baskets are great for displaying flowers and dried herbs while remaining functional.
