These Market Baskets are fantastic! They are the perfect vessel to store small instruments and carry them around to various locations. The reason I love them is because they are handmade in Ghana and they come in various beautiful colors. I think you will love their individuality and usefulness too! - Stephanie
The Overseas Connection G-159A Market Basket is a great way to hold and store your world instruments. Every market basket is hand-woven in village co-ops in Ghana, West Africa using natural, locally available materials. By purchasing these baskets, you are helping to provide healthcare and school supplies for the weavers, their families and their villages.
Specifications: • Large (15""-17"" diameter) • Strong • Durable • Colorful • Each basket is unique, being entirely hand-made
(Since this is handmade, please note colors will vary from pictured. When this basket is delivered, it will be folded in a box. Use the following directions for reshaping it.)
Start by running warm water over the entire basket - you can even get the handle and tag wet. Allow the water to soak in and then shake off any excess water. Allowing the water to completely soak in makes the basket very pliable. Put the basket down on a flat surface, roll it around and set into the desired shape. Allow to air dry.
I absolutely love this basket! It is beautiful in color and is larger than what I expected. It is perfect for carrying various instruments, props, etc. in the classroom or for programs.
