Extra Large Black & White Master African Basket

  • This oversized "master" basket was specially selected for its beauty and quality by the owner of Swahili Modern on a recent trip to Senegal. The basket is woven by coiling thin strips of plastic over natural grasses.

    Woven by a senior craftswoman, the basket includes woven handles and a fitted lid. Only one basket is available.

    Measures 21”D x 29”T (to lip), 37”T (to top). Before ordering, please double check measurements of your space as the basket is quite large.

  • 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.
