These lidded African baskets are handwoven using natural grasses and plastic strips by rural craftswomen in Senegal.
Great for giving gifts, each basket includes a fitted lid and measures 5.5"D x 6.5"H. Size may vary slightly due to the handmade nature of the product.
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.
