Elephant grass grows abundantly in the Bolgatanga region in Ghana, West Africa. This grass is seasonally harvested by the Fra Fra people. The grass is boiled and dried before the weavers split each length and then roll the two strands back together. The durable strands are then woven into baskets, which takes 3-7 days depending on the size. 
Purchasing these baskets helps to honour and preserve the traditional craft of weaving, while maintaining a long-term fair-trade relationship with the weavers.
