  • Round, vase-shaped basket, handwoven in Senegal

  • Sturdy construction from cattail stalks and strips of colorful recycled plastic
  • Created by Wolof women using their skills for supplemental income
  • Makes a beautiful decor accent anywhere in the home

A network of rural Wolof women in Senegalese villages are working together to create beautiful handcrafted baskets for export. Using locally harvested cattail stalks and strips of plastic used to make prayer mats, the women bring supplemental income to their households by weaving baskets between their daily duties. The baskets are individually handcrafted, so yours may not exactly match the photos.

The baskets are imported into the United States by Swahili African Modern, a member of the Fair Trade Federation, an association committed to providing fair wages to their artisan workers and creating products from sustainable materials.
