Wolof women in Senegal weave the baskets by binding cattail stalks with strips of plastic gathered from the local, plastic prayer mat factory in Dakar.
The baskets are ideal for small storage and brighten up any room of your home with dots of color.
Large measures approximately 14"L x 10.5"H. Fair trade.
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.
