Mmaa Asombono Basket is handwoven by local artisans on the border of Ghana and Burkina Faso. It is named after the daughter of the founder of the Collectives and means 'good gift' in the local dialect. 

Woven using traditional Ghanaian techniques, it has an open top and dark navy leather handles that will sit comfortably in the crook of your arm.

The Mmaa Asombono Basket is robust enough to hold everything you need to a day out. 

Crafted from locally sourced straw and vegetable-based dyes.

Size & Design

The Mmaa Asombono Basket is approximately:

  • Height: 26cm (excluding handles)
  • Width: May vary from 29cm across.
  • Handles: 14cm handles.

Size may vary slightly due to the hand-crafted process - this is not considered a fault. 

The patterns differ with each new batch and the bases may be patterned or plain.

Please email us if you prefer a particular size or base design.

Sustainable Accessories

Mmaa bags are handwoven by local artisans. This sustainable bag has the below CONTENT sustainable fashion badges:

Handcrafted Badge - The artisans, part of a collective on the border of Ghana and Burkina Faso, take two to three days to hand weave each piece. Variations in design and pattern are a unique part of this process and not considered a fault. 

Resource Innovation Badge - Straw is procured locally, reducing the carbon footprint. Vegetable based dyes are used and the weaving is all done by women in the collective

Charitable Badge - For each Mmaa bag that you purchase, a girl or young woman will receive a reusable sanitary kit (one pad holder, three washable pad liners, soap, six pairs of underwear and washing bag) that will help keep girls in school and help end the shame and silence around period poverty. Members of the collective have access to financial literacy training, sexual and reproductive health education and business support programs.
