The baskets are woven from straw from a type of ‘veta vera’ grass. “Pennisetum Straw” or “Pennisetum Purperium”.
Contrary to what you might have read elsewhere, the straw that it used is not a ‘’local’’ straw that grows in Ghana’s very hot and arid Upper East Region, rather, it is a straw that is wild harvested and dried 300 – 600 KM south of Bolgatanga in Ghana’s cooler, wetter south. The dried straw is then transported to Bolgatanga.
90% of the dyes we use are chemical dyes. Any website that tells you that the straw is dyed with purely natural dyes is fibbing.
These dyes are very susceptible to fading in the sun!
It is not a good idea to displayed them in a part of your home that gets a lot of direct sunlight.
