Bolga hand fans are products from elephant grass. This grass is fully decomposable making them environmentally friendly. It is native to the African grasslands and is very common in the southern parts of Ghana. It has a low water and nutrient requirement making it easy to cultivate for weaving our products. In other parts of West Africa, they use the grass for other purposes.

Dimensions for our standard fans are approximately L 43cm x W 28cm.

Please note that due to the handmade nature of these Bolga fans, there may be some variation in the size. All our woven products are sourced ethically from our partner weavers in Bolga, Ghana.
