About

In 2016, Pokka Daa left her corporate job in Accra and returned to her family
roots in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region of Ghana. Settling back into her new surroundings, Pokka realised the potential opportunities to improve the livelihoods of traditional basket weavers in her extended family and their local community. Pokka worked closely with the weaving community to improve product quality and access to the market, unlocking higher financial returns for the weaver communities.

 


After moving to Ghana in 2015, Clemmie and Bartie Stagg immediately fell in love with the wide array of local artisan products. Their family and friends also loved the Christmas and Birthday presents sourced from local markets all over Accra. After meeting in one of these markets, Pokka, Clemmie and Bartie decided to see if they could further increase the demand for the Bolgatanga weaver's baskets and FraFra Baskets was born.

FraFra has been a labour of love for Pokka, Clemmie and Bartie, as they've
persevered to bring these handwoven baskets from the weavers of Bolgatanga to the homes of the UK.

FraFra

We have named our company after the group of people that produce the most amazing baskets from Veta Vera grass up in the Upper East of Ghana; The Frafra People.

Our Mission

At Frafra, our goal is to provide high-quality woven products to our customers and bring about meaningful change for our weavers. Through partnering with Pokka, it allows us to avoid using middlemen, and offer direct support to our weavers. Pokka has helped start these current projects with our weavers; providing wheelchairs for the elderly weavers, financial support for a weaving centre in Gambibigo, and sourcing improved colour dyes for the baskets.
