A perfect blend of storage and art, these durable knitting baskets are handwoven in rural Senegal using natural grasses and plastic strips. Each basket features a chevron design with contrasting aqua and dark blue.
The baskets are checked for quality by many hands and will last for years to come with little to no maintenance. Measures 18"L x 10"W x 11"H; size may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of these baskets.
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.
