This basket by the Elmina-based design brand Aketekete is handwoven by artisans in the communities of Sumbrungu, Yikene, Zaare, and Gambibigo in Northern Ghana.
The founders, Maria and Micheal state about their brand: "Aketekete is the name of a traditional festival from Elmina (Ghana) in which rituals are performed to connect with ancestors and celebrate their roots. It is an ode to the past and to never be forgotten. A connection to nature and its forms. To celebrate culture, origins and stories otherwise lost. We value collaborating and connecting with creatives to design modern objects with age-old techniques by supporting artisan communities to make them."
