  • Using locally harvested cattail stalks and strips of plastic used to make prayer mats, a network of rural Wolof women in nine Senegalese villages work together to create beautiful handcrafted baskets such as this lidded basket.

    Measures 12"D x 14"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.
