Senegal Baskets

Senegalese Tall Black Bongo Basket with Lid

Swahili Modern


  • New in 2017, these tall baskets are woven in Senegal using plastic strips and natural grasses. Each basket includes a flat, fitted lid and braided handles.

    Our hampers are handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in rural Senegal. Crafting baskets allows the craftswomen to earn income from the comfort of their community.

    Measures 25"T x 18"D; 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.
