Our handcrafted Bolga Baskets are a favorite gathering basket of children and adults alike. Woven from Veta Vera grass by artisans, they are each unique and special. The handles are wrapped with leather to reinforce their strength, and they are the perfect size for so many things that this is an investment worthy of many tasks and activities.

The smaller size for these bolga gathering baskets are easy to hold and carry by children and adults alike and great as a foraging wild craft basket, play basket, Easter basket and basket decor. 



Some things we’ve discovered this pretty basket is useful for are gathering vegetables from the garden, as well as berries, herbs, flowers, pine cones, sea shells and other nature treasures.

They are great for toy storage and art supply storage and we’ve even used it as pretty basket decor to set a jar of water inside ours and used it to hold flowers on a dresser and our breakfast table.

Our little ones have also used the basket for pretend picnics, real picnics, pretend shopping, a baby doll bed, a baby doll carrier, car trip snacks, car trip toys, Halloween trick or treating and as their ‘back-up’ Easter basket “just in case the Easter Bunny leaves too many eggs and surprises,” we were informed.  I’m sure the list of uses goes on as this really is the prettiest little useful basket around.

Taking care of this basket is as easy as turning on the water. If you ever need to reshape your basket, wet it with cool water and shape it with your hands. It’s easy and quick and really a little bit amazing. Then let it air dry untouched and once dry, it is good to go on new adventures.

We have found two ways to wet the basket, soaking it in a tub or sink for a few minutes works and is the way most people probably do, but we have also found that simply spraying the basket inside and out with a detachable shower head, then quickly shaping it with our hands and setting it aside to dry works just as well.
