About Us

Welcome to Little Merchants...

Thanks so much for heading over and checking us out. I'm Kate and I run Little Merchants with my two year old sidekick Charlie girl in tropical Cairns, Qld. We're a little basket crazy over here and just love all things baskets, how their made and most importantly how they go back to supporting the weavers of Ghana and their families. 

I started Little Merchants because I absolutely fell in love with baskets and most importantly Bolga Baskets. They are lovingly hand woven in Bolgatanga, Ghana by the local artisans. They are such beautiful baskets, each with a unique design reflective of the person who weaved it, making each basket your own unique, one off piece of Africa to take home.

In a world filled with so much plastic these days, its good to know that Bolga Baskets are made from 100% natural, sustainable, eco-friendly and non-toxic Elephant Grass, making these baskets not only safe for you and your baby, but also for the environment.

I just love being able to bring you unique pieces for your home that are ethical, natural and safe for the whole family and I will constantly be on the look out for new pieces to bring you.

Thank you so much for following our journey and we can't wait to see where this takes us.
