Sterling Dipped Peace Corps Hamper

Swahili Modern

SEN15J


  • Bringing style to storage, this elegant cream and silver handmade basket is woven in rural Senegal using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic from the local prayer mat factory. It features a flat lid with cutout handles.

    Measures 14"D x 19"T; 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.
