Meet the Maker

Big Blue Moma

For the past six years, Big Blue Moma have been on a remarkable journey of importing and wholesaling Fair Trade Ghanaian Baskets, known as Bolga Baskets. Their dedication to ethical practices has enabled them to support the talented artisans of Bolgatanga, making a positive impact in the process. But their passion doesn't stop there. As makers themselves, they harness the beauty of Ghanaian textiles and beads to create one-of-a-kind home decor items and jewelry. Their artistic vision breathes new life into these materials, infusing them with a unique charm that captivates the senses.

The Inspiration

Big Blue Moma’s commitment to authenticity is unwavering. They establish direct connections with the basket makers in Bolgatanga, ensuring that every piece they acquire is genuine and ethically sourced. By cutting out middlemen, they empower the artisans and maintain the highest standards of quality.

The Impact

The fruits of their labor reach far and wide. Retail stores across North America eagerly embrace their offerings, with shipments dispatched from Quebec. And in Europe, they bring the enchantment of Ghanaian craftsmanship directly to customers' doorsteps, shipping from the heart of Ghana itself.
