Aqua African Sahara Basket with Lid

  • This spacious basket is ideal in children's rooms, bathrooms, or any living space that requires extra storage without sacrificing style. 

    The baskets are handwoven in Senegal using plastic strips and natural grasses. The baskets are well made and can last for decades with simple care.

    Measures 17"H x 14.5"W; 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, 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.
