Bilia means Newborn in Gurenɛ, a dialect attributed to the originators of this craft. Made from Elephant Grass and Dyes this Moses basket bassinet is beautifully handcrafted for your newborn.
We call our bassinets, "Nature's Bassinets", as they are completely handmade with dried natural elephant grass. Elephant grass is similar to hay. Each basket takes several days to weave from start to finish. This is a very difficult completely handwoven craft, as a result patterns and natural dyeing may vary slightly.
The basket comes with a fitted foam 1 inch foam mattress pad. Our baskets are made under strict standards and sanitary conditions, each is factory woven, steam cleaned, and prepared for use. Raw dried animal hide is not used, Quality leather or cloth is added to each basket. Sides and mattress are measured for sleep safety. Item has been tested by CPSC approved laboratory for safety.
