The AKOO from The Basket Room is a robust and vibrant hand woven bicycle basket from Ghana.
Woven by a cooperative in Northern Ghana from wild veta vera grass. To construct each bike basket is a three day process once the grass is split, rolled by hand, and dyed in boiling water.
Each bicycle basket from The Basket Room tells an important story about collaboration and sustainable living. In purchasing any of the woven baskets you become part of this narrative, directly supporting the weavers in becoming less dependent on the unpredictable nature of self-sufficiency farming.
