Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal update traditional coil weaving methods by enlivening natural grass baskets with colorful strips of plastic salvaged from a mat factory. Cattails grow abundantly in rural Senegal, so women can earn a sustainable income from basket weaving while enriching homes around the world with modern African craftsmanship.
This classic-style laundry hamper storage basket features an overlapping lid and cutout handles. As this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
