Handwoven in Senegal, these bright baskets are created using natural grasses and salvaged plastic strips. Each basket includes a fitted lid and knob for easy on-off.
The baskets are a great way to deliver gifts or hold small treasures. Measures 5.5"D x 6.5"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, 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.
