Silver Stripe African Knitting Basket

  • Fair trade from Senegal, these versatile baskets are handmade from local grasses and salvaged plastic strips.

    Each basket measures 18"L x 10"W x 11"T and shimmers with a silver and white striped design. The baskets are sturdy and designed to last for years with no maintenance required.

  • 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.
