The Baba Tree Basket Tag says it perfectly:
At Baba Tree Baskets we apply tremendous technical skill and quality assurance to fashioning our product. Akabore Abentara, Assibi Assah and other weavers from Bolgatanga, Ghana spend countless hours stripping and dyeing elephant grass fibers into our potential colorways that are unique on the market. Their rhythmic braiding of these fibers into our distinctive shape and designs reflect years of practice, but it is the laughter and singing of the bustling Baba Tree compound interwoven in the very folds of our baskets that make them so special. Your basket is biodegradable, resilient and of the highest standard. Even more importantly, your purchase contributes to sustainable income in Ghana and brings dignity to the priceless craftsmanship of the Fra Fra people. True value for money. I assure you that you have not bought yourself a basket you have bought a genuine piece of art. Welcome to the Basket Renaissance.
I can vouch for Baba Tree as i have visited the compound several times. You can read about my first visit here. Greg, a Canadian lives in Ghana on the compound. He works tirelessly with the weavers in Bolgatanga to create a sustainable and dignified living. Fairtrade being practiced quietly and with integrity. I am so delighted to be an ambassador for Baba Tree.
