Small Lidded African Baskets

Sold Out

  • Perfect for small storage, these lidded African baskets are handwoven using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic. The baskets are very durable and add subtle color to any room of your home.

    The baskets are crafted by Wolof craftswomen, who earn sustainable incomes for their families through the baskets' sale. Measures 8.5"T x 8.5"D; 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.
