Meaning & Purpose

The material used for weaving in Bolgatanga is elephant grass, this grass is only available in the southern part of Ghana, Kumasi to be precise. The grasses are harvested and dried up, a process which might take up to three (3) days. It is then tied together in big bundles and transported to the Bolga markets. This is where most of the weavers buy their raw materials. The straw grass is further processed before weaving begins.

  1. Straw is collected and split then rolled/twisted for texture. 
  2. Straw is dyed to give a vibrant color before weaving begins.
