Care Instructions


Pennisetum purpureum natural fiber - also known as elephant grass. This wild straw used to weave the baskets is harvested by hand in the savannah of Ghana and sun-dried. It does not receive any chemical treatments. Straw may have light variations in colors and thickness which appears in the final basket.

Vegetable leather from French cows raised for their meat and tanned in France using oak barks. The natural process of vegetable tanning leaves the leather grain visible, therefore some variations in textures may appear on both sides of the leather. This process allows the material to aged beautifully. The white leather handles did receive a paint treatment to allow the color to be bright. 

Final basket product

These bags being handcrafted, light differences may occur. The baskets are handwoven in Ghana by local craftsmen and craftswomen using traditionnal techniques. They are woven without a mould and therefore each basket is unique, carefully selected for it's weaving quality and the harmony of it's shape. Some basket forms are obtained in a second shaping process done by hand in our atelier in France. The leather handles are fabricated and hand-stitched in our atelier in Saint Pierreville, France.


Care instructions

  • Store the basket bag in a dry and dark place and keep away from rain. With sunlight, the straw will age and become more golden.
  • Straw has some roughness which might damaged delicate clothes.
  • Our leather is vegetable tanned, therefore it can marks promptly. This is intended and will give a beautiful aged appearance to the handles. Please note that light color transfer may occur on light-colored garments.
  • We use textile dyes to color our straw in different shades. If wet, color transfer may occur from the basket to nearby clothing or natural straw.
