Wholesale Choices

We understand that different customers have different design tastes. In-order to fulfill your wholesale Bolga baskets order, we offer you various options

  • ┬áMarket selection
    A market is held every 3 days, where weavers from the villages around Bolgatanga come into the town center and sell their baskets, to middle men, wholesalers, single purchase customers. It starts at dawn and ends around 8-9am. It is an interesting sight to behold, as there are all kinds of baskets and hats from all over the area.
    Quality levels, colors, designs vary widely and each market day is different.
    Purchasing is done at a fast pace, as you are competing with other buyers for the best baskets. There are no guarantees and payments are non-refundable. However, this is a space for creative stimulation, as the latest designs almost always find their way into the general market.
    For customers who want quick order fulfillment without pin-point specificity, this is a good choice. Please take your order as a wish-list. We will help you select high quality baskets that fit your request. We will also try to get the designs and colors to match your choice as close as possible.
    We have a “no-pricing” policy. Meaning, we pay the first price the women ask for their baskets. We believe this is a fair reflection of the monetary value the weaver places on the basket and we are glad to support their craft.
  • Catalog selection
    Our catalog contains basket types and designs that our weavers have been able to perfect over time. The wide range of design options can sometimes be overwhelming. Some customers would prefer to have what we show on the website and in the catalog.
    Our wholesale catalog offers baskets that have gone through serious in-house quality control as well as long hours of brainstorming regarding color combinations. We take suggestions, recommendations and references from our customers and blend this into designs that are unique and appealing to the eyes.
