Black & Gold Storage Basket

Sold Out

  • Simple and useful, these durable African baskets provide an easy storage solution for any room of your home.

    The baskets are woven by rural Senegalese craftswomen using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic. Fair trade. Measures 12"D x 13"H. 

  • 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 proven way for rural women to earn the fair trade incomes that build healthy communities.
