Jemima 10 Cows Basket – 03
These baskets are hand woven by skilled artisans in Bolgatanga. They're a great way to add texture and colour into you home and make wonderful gifts for friends and family.
The story behind the name "Jemima 10 Cows," dowries are still considered part of the marriage tradition in Africa. A dowry given by the groom typically consists of two cows and a few other goods. During a Baba Tree weaving workshop, artisan Jemima Akurigo was jokingly asked what dowry would be required to marry her and she replied with a sly look in her eyes, "10 Cows!" And so her new design creation was named the "Jemima 10 Cows" basket.
