These urn shaped baskets received their name in honour of weaver Jemima Akologo who was the first to weave this difficult design. In the villages around Bolgatanga the accepted dowry or “bride” price is 2 cows – Jemima’s not having that -” I want 10 cows” she said – hence the name. We think that she is very worthy of 10 cows!
This gorgeous basket has been woven in a beautiful design in pale green, lime green, pale orange and dark orange. Colours that meld together beautifully.
Sitting 41cms tall with a base diameter of 32cms this is a beautiful pot that will brighten any corner of the home, bringing a ray of African sunshine!
