Bolga Baskets from Maragiya ® are fair trade made in the same way as they have been for decades. Families of many generations participate in the communal effort of basket weaving. We whole-heartedly support the community village work environment and place no restrictions on whether employees want to make their baskets at a community weaving center, in the comfort of their own homes with their families, or under a giant baobab tree soaking up the late afternoon African sun.

Maragiya® firmly believes in fair trade principles that create environmentally conscious, community sustaining and economically advantaged conditions for all of our employees, partners and weavers.
     Bolga Baskets International™ does more than just import baskets from Africa. We develop positive, open, and long-term relationships with all of our partners in both Ghana and the United States. Unlike many import/exporters who use one local agent to run their operation, Bolga Baskets International pre-finances numerous individual weavers as well as weaving groups consisting of up to sixty members. We also employ six year round salaried staff members to manage all on the ground operations.

African Bolga Baskets Header

Bolga baskets are made with kinkanhe grass that is colored with natural dyes and hand-woven by skilled weavers in farming villages located in the Bolgatanga region of northern Ghana. The Bolga Basket is said to be the most popular out of all African baskets because of their designs, size, and durability. All of our Bolga baskets are fair trade products.


In this short film, the women of Kalbeo village in northern Ghana demonstrate their techniques for crafting baskets for sale in markets such as Maragiya. This video is for general informational purposes only to demonstrate how Bolga Baskets such as ours are hand woven and prepared for shipping to Maragiya for distribution in the U.S.
