This basket reflects the memorable colors of the Ghanaian countryside. The Asungtaba bicycle basket is woven from veta vera grass in the Northern region of Ghana. Whether used for small grocery trips, a catch all of small accessories or simply for a fashion statement, these incredibly durable baskets are sure to be a conversation piece. Their usefulness is outweighed only by their exquisite construction and passion with which each artisan crafts these baskets.
This bicycle basket came to be by an inspired remark by one of House of Talents employee: "Wouldn't these beautiful baskets make a lovely bicycle basket?".
Joining Joseph's basket-weaving community with Quality Bicycle Products (QBP) distribution business provides economic development to the nearly 200 Ghanaian women weavers. Additionally, House of Talents is donating 5% of all company profits to establish a scholarship fund for the children of the community in which the basket weavers reside. As you can see, stewardship and oppotunity can partner when simply inspired by those who take time to care.
