Beautifully bold handwoven dog beds. Each one is truly unique and one of a kind.

Woven from indigenous veta vera grasses in Northern Ghana - also known as Elephant Grass - each dog basket takes up to three days to weave by hand. The production process is lengthy: this Ghanaian grass is harvested, split, hand-rolled and dyed before a skilled weaver from our partner weaving cooperative in sets to work.

The majority of these weavers are men, having been taught the age-old art of basket weaving from their own mothers and fathers.  Agricultural work is the mainstay of most weavers’ family incomes, but poor rainfall and drought makes life extremely challenging. Basket weaving, and producing these exquisite woven Moses baskets, brings women and men the opportunity to earn a valuable second income.
