African baskets bring amazing artisan craftsmanship into our living spaces, such as these useful bath bins, handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal.
Measures 13"T x 12"D; size may vary slightly. 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. 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.
