- Made Fairly: These delicately textured and handcrafted woven headboards were made by groups of women in intimate communities in the Bolgatanga region of Ghana in an ethical, fair trade environment.
- Grass for Elephants: The material used is elephant grass which is only available in the southern part of Ghana. Kumasi to be precise. The grasses are harvested and dried up, which takes up to three (3) days. It’s then tied together in big bundles and transported to the Bolga markets where most weavers buy their raw materials. The straw is then split, and rolled/twisted for texture before being dyed to give a vibrant color before weaving begins.
