Our handmade moses baskets are specifically designed for newborns. They are smaller than a cot, and provide a cosy and reassuring space for your baby. The baskets are light weight, which make them easy to move around.
With this basket you will have somewhere for your little one to sleep in no matter where you are, both in and outside of your house. And when the night comes you can place your basket on the stand next to your bed, as it is comforting for your baby to be close to you and allows you to respond quickly to their calls.
This sale item comes without a mattress, the mattresses sold separate won’t fit this basket. The moses basket can be shipped word wide. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are outside of Europe.
Size: L:74 cm x W:30 cm
Our moses basket stand raises your baby to a height that is perfect beside your bed, and allows you to watch over your little one day and night. The stand folds for easy storage when not in use.
The sturdy frame, in a natural beech wooden finish, offers a stable and safe place for your basket. The stand comes with a metal base and hoops to hold basket securely.
Size: H:71 cm x W:45 cm x D:60 cm
Behind the basket
All of our baskets are fair trade and handmade in Bolgatanga, West Africa. Bolgatanga is the largest town in the Upper East Ghana and very close to the edge of the Sahara Desert.
For many generations, weaving has been a traditional skill of the people in Bolga. Basket weaving has helped bring much needed income to the villages surrounding Bolgatanga. Weaving is a traditional skill, which has been handed down from generation to generation. The baskets are made from kinkahe or elephant grass which grows in swamps and along rivers across Ghana, and is favoured by elephants, hence the name.
Our baskets are finessed with leather handles. The leather comes from local goats that have lived a free life. All of the meat is sold at local markets. We utilize as much of every skin as possible; scraps are reserved for making handles for smaller baskets or jewellery.
