Welcome to Frafra Baskets

Beautiful handwoven baskets for you while bringing about meaningful change for every weaver we work with.

Thoughtful design and creativity has always been intrinsic to the long tradition of basket weaving in Bolga. We have ensured that this does not change. Every basket is distinct, distinguished by its hand-dyed hues and individually chosen patterns.

From Grass to Bolga Basket

Each basket is made from Veta Vera Grass with patterns chosen and hand-woven by each weaver.

  • Emma - So Pleased

    Great choice of beautiful baskets on the website. Difficult to choose just one.

    My purchases arrived quickly and all were packed carefully and arrived safely.

  • Pru B - Fantastic Laundry Basket

    I was a bit reticent about spending so much on a laundry basket when I could get one half the price from John Lewis but I am SO delighted with this lovely colourful basket which is now a centrepiece in my bathroom! It looks really well made, is a fabulous design and I'm very glad I got one before they sold out...please pass on my comments to the talented craftsmen and women who make these baskets.

  • Candy C - Love this basket!

    It’s lovely and looks really well made and strong with a leather handle. It also looks much more expensive than it was. I’ve bought an extra one for my daughter as she admired it.
