Here is a producer working on a “modern” style, recycled Bolga basket in our founding village in Bolgatanga. You can see pieces of plastic and cloth sticking out. This is how the basket looks before it’s tidied up. However, some customers have requested us to leave these pieces sticking out! This producer is working on her first basket for G-lish Foundation in this photo.
