Handwoven in Senegal with rich blue plastic strips from recycled prayer mats, this trio of African baskets offers stylish storage and durability.
The two larger baskets include cut-out handles. Large measures 18"L x 15"W x 11"T, Medium measures 14"L x 12"W x 8"T, and Small measures 10"L x 9"W x 7"T.
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.
