Weavers in Northern Ghana are world-renowned for crafting exquisite baskets from a tough grass grown south near Kumasi. Known as veta vera, or elephant grass, this all-natural craft material yields baskets that are easily shaped with a little water, and serve beautifully for years. To create this set of decorative baskets, weavers took on the challenge of creating barrel-shaped silhouettes. Their mastery at increasing and decreasing rows is showcased in these short-run works of functional art.
