Using plastic strips and abundant natural grasses, Wolof women in Senegal weave these modern baskets which offer beauty and functionality. The hampers are new in 2017 and feature a tight coil stitch and excellent quality.
This laundry hamper has a slightly different shape than our previous hampers. Its flat lid fits snugly inside the basket top and includes a braided loop handle.
Measures 14.5"D x 17"H; size may vary slightly. Questions about shipping? Visit our Shipping FAQ.
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.
