With fitted lids and braided handles, African hampers bring amazing artisan craftsmanship into our living spaces. This ample basket is woven in Senegal using plastic strips and natural grasses.
Our hampers are handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in rural Senegal. Crafting baskets allows the craftswomen to earn income from the comfort of their community.

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.
