Woven in rural Senegal, this nesting trio of baskets is handmade from natural grass stalks and thin plastic strips. The two larger baskets include cut-out handles.
These durable, sturdy baskets are tightly woven and can last for decades. Like all of our products, they are 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.
