The basket was specially selected by the owner of Swahili Modern on a recent trip to Dakar. The basket is of exceptional quality and features braided handles and a fitted lid.
Measures 20” D x 41” T and is considered very large. Before ordering, please double check the measurements of your intended space.

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.
