The Carmen Moses Basket
Each basket is a work of art, handmade by artisans in Ghana using local elephant grass and natural pigments and mineral dyes. Our baskets are fair trade and absolutely environmentally friendly and sustainable.
To clean or re-shape your moses basket, you simply wet it with cool water, clean and shape, then allow it to air dry or dry in the sunlight. Each basket should be wet and cleaned once a year to hydrate the straw.
The basket dimensions are approximately:
W: 16 inches
L: 29 inches
H: 9-10 inches
Because each basket is handmade, it is therefore unique and sizes can vary 1-2inches at most. Each basket fit with standard moses basket stands and rockers.
We offer two additional options with your baskets;
1. Australian made, natural dyed cotton mattress which complies with national SIDS standards.
2. Australian made natural dye sheepskins in various colours.
Please add additional listings to your cart if you would like to select either of these options.
Please note that although this basket includes handles, and is strong and durable, we do not recommend carrying your baby in the basket for safety reasons.
Each basket comes with a string of handmade cotton tassels attached, an ancient symbol meant to bring good luck and long life.
Once your baby has outgrown their Moses Basket, we suggest you use it as storage for toys, linens & clothes, or a bed for your pet or bubs dolls. Alternatively, keep it for your next little cub!
