Blue Dot African Gather Basket

Sold Out

  • A stylish way to gather belongings, these sturdy baskets are woven from natural grasses and thin strips of plastic in Senegal.

    New in 2017, these lidded baskets are beautifully crafted and can last for decades. Measures 12.75"D x 13"T; size may vary slightly. Fair trade.

  • 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.
