Pink African Storage Basket

  • These delightfully pink, Senegal baskets feature a fitted lid and sturdy, coil stitch design.

    The baskets are woven by rural Wolof women using cattail stalks and plastic strips. The baskets smell grassy and add a bright pop of color to your home or baby nursery.

    Measures 11"D x 5"T.

  • 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.
