African Baskets at Tango Zulu Imports

We carry a large assortment of Bolga baskets and other African baskets at Tango Zulu Imports.  Our most popular style is the market Bolga basket, like the one seen here.  They come in multiple sizes and endless color and pattern combinations, including undyed baskets in a natural straw color.  As their name suggests, the market baskets are traditionally used for shopping, although the smaller ones make perfect Easter baskets and the larger ones serve well as harvest baskets or laundry baskets.

Our oval Bolga baskets run a close second to market baskets in terms of popularity.  They typically have two handles and are generally used as a tote, since their oval shape lends them to carrying books, magazines, and anything you would normally carry in a purse.  They also make nice picnic baskets.  Recently we introduced a variation in a rectangle shape, and they’ve sold well.

We carry many other styles of Bolga baskets, including various pot baskets, flower baskets, fruit baskets, storage baskets with lids, and bucket baskets.   All of our Bolga baskets are both durable and beautiful, and have a worldwide reputation for quality.

We have a few other African baskets as well, such as Tanzanian fruit baskets.  We expect to grow our African basket collection in the coming months.
