These stunning urn shaped baskets are really special. And so is the story behind their name.

In the farming and basket weaving villages around Bolgatanga in northern Ghana, the accepted bride price or dowry is two cows.

'No way,' says Jemima Akologo, the first weaver to successfully weave this extremely challenging design. 'I want 10 cows!'

Average basket size - inches / centimetres - approximately:

  • Basket diameter, widest point: 19 inches / 48 cm
  • Height to rim: 17 inches / 44 cm
