Black African Knitting Basket

Sold Out

  • These open baskets are woven by rural Wolof women using local grasses and black strips of plastic.

    Their simple shape and color makes the baskets a versatile storage solution for any room of your home. Measures 18"L x 10"W x 11"T; 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, 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.
