Our U Handle Shopper is made by hand in the village of Nyariga in the Northern region of Ghana. It's a workhorse basket designed for the Western market and is most often used as a shopping basket. Its black-and-white handle is a sturdy addition, both functional and beautiful. The handle on this model measures approximately 6" from the top of the basket so it is not an "over the shoulder" basket. Basket dimensions are approximately 16" x 13" wide and 15" high.
