We gave you a sneak preview of the first item to go into our Goody Bag Competition last week and we are delighted to show you this second item kindly donated by The Basket Room.
You could be in with a chance to add a splash of colour and style to your bike with this unique, fair trade basket accessory. Ideal for small shopping trips, a cycle around town, study books and picnics!
This beautiful basket, worth £69, is part of the signature collection and was designed in-house by The Basket Room and handwoven by their partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana.
Woven from the wild veta vera grass, each basket goes through a detailed process from harvesting, rolling, dyeing and finally weaving. Dyes are natural, often extracted from tree barks and vegetables. Buying this basket directly supports the weavers to increase their livelihoods and become less dependent on self-sufficiency farming, which is very unreliable during the dry seasons. Each bike basket comes with a thank you card from the cooperative who made your basket. Meet the weavers from Ghana here.
