Extra Large Aqua Brown Stairstep African Basket

  • This gorgeous handmade basket was woven by a senior craftswoman in Senegal using thin strips of plastic and natural grasses. Colors are white, aqua, and brown.

    The owner of Swahili Modern specially selected this basket for its beauty and quality on a recent trip to Dakar. The basket features a fitted lid and cutout handles. A tight weave ensures years of use with little to no maintenance.

    Measures 35"H x 18"W. Before ordering, please double check the measurements of your space as this basket is very large. Questions about shipping? Visit our Shipping FAQ.

  • 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 proven way for rural women to earn the fair trade incomes that build healthy communities.
