Featuring a modern design unique to Swahili Modern, these durable baskets are handmade in Senegal using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic.
Woven by our experienced crew of Wolof weavers, the baskets are sturdy and can last for decades. Measures 18"T x 17"D; 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.
