These colorful African baskets are woven using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic. Each basket features bright squares of color and a fitted lid.
The baskets measures 8.5" x 8.5" and are a favorite choice for storing toys, scarves, and craft supplies.
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.
