Asungtaba Rectangular Bike Basket
The Asungtaba bicycle basket is handwoven from a tropical grass called the elephant grass or veta vera.
All dyes used are natural without artificial sealants, they will fade over time. Each basket comes with leather straps to attach to the handlebars..
Description: This basket reflects the memorable colors of the Ghanaian countryside. The Asungtaba bicycle basket is woven from veta vera grass in the Northern region of Ghana. Whether used for small grocery trips, a catch-all of small accessories or simply for a fashion statement, these incredibly durable baskets are sure to be a conversation piece. Their usefulness is outweighed only by their exquisite construction and passion with which each artisan crafts these baskets.
Asungtaba means “helping each other succeed” in Frafra, the language of the community of basket weavers. The bicycle baskets are providing income to over 1000 Ghanaian women in the community. Additionally, House of Talents is providing health insurance, establishing a library and a scholarship fund for the children in the community in which our basket weavers reside. As you can see, stewardship and opportunity can partner when simply inspired by those who take time to care. Be inspired along with us! Happy Riding.
Dimensions: 12" x 9" x 9"
Care of Basket: To reshape: wet your basket (avoid getting the leather wet as it will damage the leather over time), let it sit for a few minutes for it to absorb the water, then shape. Let dry thoroughly. Avoid prolonged direct sunlight – since all dyes used are natural without artificial sealants, they will fade over time.
