African Baskets


:: Mission

B&B Market Baskets’ mission is to support the economic stability of our weavers and their village, enhancing their quality of life, and improving educational and public health benefits for young and old alike.

We, likewise, take pride in supporting the use of sustainable, eco-friendly natural fiber materials, thereby reducing the use of plastics and other petroleum based products as well as the need for paper and plastic bags.

We are extremely proud of our success in sharing these unique baskets with the world, and providing the highest quality baskets of their kind to our discerning customers

:: Company Overview

B&B Market Baskets is a small, cottage industry owned by Bunny Lincoln and Betty Lindholm, longtime friends, and professional colleagues.

Our company is four years old, and serves a national clientele from warehouse facilities located in southern Oregon and northern California. In addition to our retail base, we also participate as vendors in various events on the west coast, and enjoy a significant website presence. We deal personally with our retailers, may be reached by phone seven days per week, and process/ship all orders, if in stock, within two business days.

The mainstay of our inventory is comprised of hand woven baskets from Bolgatanga, Ghana, Africa. We deal directly with our weavers, paying higher than established fair trade prices for premium quality baskets, and have developed a cherished personal relationship with them.

Our baskets are crafted from elephant grass grown, harvested, dyed and woven by our artisans. Known for their extreme durability, they are available in a wide variety of styles, unique patterns and colors. The handles are covered with tanned goat leather. All baskets are colorfast, and can be easily cleaned with mild soap and water.

Due to occasionally limited availability of XL and ”Tiny” baskets, we will gladly call you personally to suggest alternative sizes, should we be unable to provide prompt service on any aspect of your order.
