The Kente Bilia Bassinet is one of our personal favorite bassinet designs here at Humble Baby Goods! We just adore the bold Natural/Midnight color combination and gorgeous weave of the pattern. The grass is hand dyed with the darkest mixtures of blue and purple to create the closest color to black, therefore it is not a pure black. The handles also feature quality wrapped leather in a natural tan color elevating the basket to another level.

Bilia means newborn in Gurenɛ, a dialect from Ghana that is attributed to the originators of this craft. Made from elephant grass & dyes this Moses basket bassinet is beautifully handcrafted for your newborn.
The bassinets are called, "Nature's Bassinets", as they are completely handmade with dried natural elephant grass. Elephant grass is similar to hardened 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 dying may vary slightly. Leather handle colors may range slightly within their color groups.
The basket comes with a fitted foam mattress pad. Baskets are made in a controlled environment according to government issued safety standards. Design Dua baskets have been tested by a US CPSC approved laboratory for safety. Baskets are not to be used with any other pillows or mattresses. Adding other items to a bassinet can cause suffocation/SIDS.
Design Dua baskets are made under strict standards and sanitary condition, each is factory woven, steam cleaned, and prepared for use. Raw dried animal hide is not used, only quality leather or cloth is added to each basket.
