Baba Tree - Ethically Woven Ghanaian Bolgatanga Baskets
A supplier of Ghanaian Bolgatanga baskets, The Baba Tree Basket Company is the creation of Gregory McCarthy, who picked up on the idea of re-selling locally made cloth, baskets and beads in his native Canada to fund an ill-fated Ghanaian cultural drumming career. On his return to the African country, MacCarthy began a fair-trade trading company with a dedicated team of local craftspeople who arrive daily at The Baba Tree headquarters in Bolgatanga, situated within Ghana’s Upper East Region. Each basket has been individually woven by a single artisan from grass endemic to the region, woven into numerous patterns or dyed into various shades.
Exploring an eclectic assortment of handmade and sustainably sourced jewellery, Couverture’s latest editorial is a celebration of free-flowing design that effortlessly blends playful twists with striking details.
Renowned for her distinctive use of colour and pattern, Donna’s designs are infused with her playful sense of humour, her love of nature and a life-long passion for craft and making.
