Senegal Baskets

Silver & White Striped Knitting Basket

Swahili Modern

SEN19P

  • These sturdy, traditional baskets are woven in rural Senegal using local grasses and thin strips of plastic in white and silver to form a striped pattern.

    The baskets' shape makes them a great catch-all while their varied coloration allows the baskets to blend into your home.

    Fair trade. Measures 18"L x 10"W x 11"T; size may vary slightly.

  • 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. First introduced by the Peace Corps, Swahili and more than 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.
