Decor Crush: African Bolga Baskets

I am totally crushing on these market baskets and I wanted to share how these can be your next go-to basket for anything around the house.  First of all, how pretty? They come in a variety of colors and oh the leather handles! Each basket is hand made so no two are alike.  They are also a part of the fair trade initiative,  an organization supporting indigenous people around the world – fairly compensating them for their work.

I have seen these in a number of homes and just recently purchased a couple of my own.  Here are five ways you can incorporate these beauties into your home!

One:

Pop some extra throws into them and display in your living room.

Two: 

Stick them on top of you kitchen cabinets.  Lovely decor, or pop them on top of the fridge and fill with extra linens. Such attractive storage.

Speaking of storage, what a perfect container for toys!  Cute and the kiddos can tote them around.

Four:

Plants!! Like yours truly I have used mine to house a draping plant. And I am loving it.

Five: 

Take it on the road.  Grab a couple and take it to the farmers market, or the apple orchard, or fill it with fresh flowers.  An eco-friendly bag, that looks cute too. I plan on bringing mine apple picking, an adorable photo op for my kids.
