Sahel Sky Senegal Bath Bin

Swahili Modern

SEN27W

  • Featuring aqua, brown, and white, this useful bath bin is handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal. It is woven in the coil style by binding dried cattail stalks with plastic strips salvaged from a Dakar mat factory. The combination of natural and synthetic materials beautifully displays modern African artistry.

    Measures 13"T x 12"D.

  • 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 Swahili, 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.
