Each P Wave lamp is a one-of-a-kind creation, entirely woven by hand from a mix of dried elephant grass and strands from local post-consumer PET plastic bottles. Bolgatanga, one of the most remote towns in Ghana, was the location chosen to develop the PET Lamp 2019 project. In the heart of the Upper East Region and just a few kilometers from Burkina Faso, Bolgatanga is known as the “city of baskets” and is also the capital of the Gurunsi people. The importance given to basket weaving in this territory is one of the main reasons why Petlamp decided to go to this remote corner of Africa to develop a new PET Lamp. Traditional basket weaving is regarded not only as a tool for day to day life and a livelihood for these people, it also helps to provide greater social cohesion and embodies the values expressed in their culture. All this makes basketry the biggest industry in this region.
