Featured in HGTV Magazine, these large African baskets add color your home while adding impressive storage.
These baskets are woven by Wolof craftswomen in Senegal using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic. Often used as laundry hampers, each basket includes a fitted lid and braided handles.
Measures 16"D x 26-28"H; size may vary slightly.
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.
