Modeled after the North African tagine, this spacious basket is hand-woven using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic. Each basket includes a fitted lid and footed base.
Because of the basket's unique shape, these baskets are woven by the most senior Wolof weavers and are only available in limited quantities.
Measures 22"T x 16"D.
Since 2008, Swahili has worked with a group of talented Wolof weavers in remote Senegal to provide hampers and baskets woven from salvaged plastic strips and cattail stalks to stores around the world, including West Elm, Land of Nod, The Company Store, Garnet Hill and Anthropologie. Working together with the Peace Corps, Swahili and over 120 Wolof women prove that cooperative, home-based craft export is an proven way for rural women to earn the fair trade incomes that build healthy communities.
