Senegal Baskets

Vanilla Dipped Peace Corps Hamper

Swahili Modern


  • Senegalese craftswomen weave natural grasses and thin plastic strips to create these beautiful hampers. Soft yellow and white coloration allows the hampers to easily match your home's decor.

    Jointly created with the Peace Corps originally in an effort to improve quality of life in Senegal, the baskets are tightly woven and will last for years to come with little to no maintenance.

    Measures 19"H x 14"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. 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.
