Durable and versatile, these woven mats provide a splash of color indoors and make the perfect blanket for a day at the beach or park. The mats are machine-woven from plastic strips in Dakar and are water-resistant, washable, and foldable.
These "mingle mats" are commonly used in Senegal and are finished with tassels on either end. The leftover plastic strips from the mats' production are also used to make our popular hampers, and as a result, our hampers and mingle mats complement each other quite nicely. Measures 48"W x 72"L.
Sospenap is located in Dakar and is one of the largest plastic extruding and weaving factories in Africa. We have worked with Sospenap and their friendly staff since 2010, and their colorful plastics have helped us to further the production of hand-woven hampers and baskets that are crucial to the financial wellbeing of Senegalese women.
