These adorable chairs, with a bold aqua and brown color, are woven in Senegal using plastic twine and welded metal frames. Talented African weavers use a tightly knit stitch that makes the chairs durable and firm.
The chairs are a hit with kids and are offered in different colors to suit every personality. A peekaboo design on the chairs' sides allows them to be stacked when not in use.
Measures 16"L x 15"W x 18"T. Fair trade.
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 excellent way for rural women to earn the fair trade incomes that build healthy communities.
