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.
