Description

The baskets are Icelandic designs. Handlooms in Brama Town, Sierra Leone. The rods are made from dried bamboo bushes that grow wild in the vicinity of the village.

Available in different shapes and sizes:

The baskets are available in 2 sizes: small: height 32cm x width 22cm and large: height 38cm x width 30cm.

Bastbali with a lid are available in 3 sizes: small: height 21cm x width 36cm, medium height: 28cm x width 43cm and large: height 30cm x width 42cm.

Bastbali without a lid are available in 3 sizes: small: height 22cm x width 36cm, medium: height 32cm x width 36cm and large: height 26cm x width 40cm.

The material is obtained from the forest around Brama Town in Sierra Leone or from nearby communities, who sell it to the weavers. They start by cutting it, which means they cut the material into equal lengths before splitting it - first into small pieces and then into fine rods. The material must then dry in the sun for at least 30 minutes, although drying can take up to two or three days when wet. Once the fabric is dry enough, the weavers clean it and then they can finally start weaving their product. Each product is then woven by the villagers of Brama Town who have practiced this craft since childhood. Each product takes a long time and a lot of care. It has often been difficult to get the designers' ideas into the right form, but with good and long cooperation, the process has managed to develop in the right direction.
