Senegal Hampers & Baskets

Black, Silver & White Half & Half Open Storage Basket

Swahili Modern


  • This open basket showcases recycled plastic strips in a top white band, accentuating half the basket with silver and the other with black strips, woven onto dried cattail stalks.

    Measures 16"D x 12"T. Size may vary some due to the handmade nature of these baskets.

  • 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 Swahili, 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.
