Unlike the baskets popular in the nearby city of Bolgatanga, each basket and weaved good is made with the utmost precision and craftsmanship. That is because these are not items you would take with you to go shopping – they are, as with all of the pieces here at SWOPA, made to an artistic standard of quality. The baskets are made in various styles, from the typical ones found around the region to unique Sirigu designs that you simply cannot find elsewhere. The time and effort to create these wonderful objects is not short and that is very apparent in the craftsmanship!
