Tri-Color Senegal
Storage Basket

  • Woven from natural grasses and plastic strips, these open baskets provide an attractive storage solution for any room of your home.

    Each 13"H x 12"W basket is woven by Wolof women in rural Senegal. The baskets' convenient size makes them one our most popular baskets and has even earned them a spot on HGTV Magazine's cover.

  • 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.
