Constructed with a sturdy and strong tight weave, our baskets are built to last, ensuring they can withstand daily use while maintaining their structural integrity.

Your basket may loose its shape due to the nature of the material. To get the shape back: 

  1.  Sprinkle/ Lightly Spray the whole bag with water 
  2.  Straighten with your hands 
  3. Allow the basket to dry on a flat surface. 




Our Baskets are all lovingly handmade in the beautiful rural areas of Ghana, using natural materials sourced locally. Each one is unique, crafted one at a time, so no two are exactly alike. Sometimes you might spot a little bump or curve here and there, but these quirks just add to the charm! By buying online, you're agreeing to embrace these natural imperfections that make each basket special.


If your basket gets wet, simply let it air dry and reshape it as needed. When not in use, it's best to store it in a dry, warm place (free from moisture!) to maintain its quality. Since the dyes used are natural, colours may fade over time if the basket is exposed to direct sunlight. Additionally, because the baskets are made of grass, areas in your home with high moisture levels could potentially lead to mould growth. If you plan to use our baskets as planters or to cover plastic pots, make sure to place a plastic dish at the bottom to catch any excess water. This precaution helps prevent the sisal from rotting and prevents dyes from running.

Super blankets

Colourful, warm & very snuggly for children. Perfect TV & travel blanket. The vibrant patterns pick up colours, a brilliant accessory in any room in the house. Thank you Jodie, our kids love their blankets & cushions.

I am so in love with my African print patchwork blanket and cushion. The colours are so vibrant and the sherpa fleece is incredibly soft. As soon as my order arrived I wished there were patchwork trousers available. Customer Service is fantastic. Thank you so much Jodie for doing a deal on the blanket and cushion and for making it the size I requested. I definitely want the biggest cushion. I would highly recommend Akinsanya Fashion. ❤❤❤
