Description: 

Introducing our collection of handwoven baskets from Senegal, a testament to the artistry and tradition of the Wolof women of rural Senegal. Each basket is a piece of history, crafted using a coil weaving technique that has been passed down through generations.

These handwoven baskets are not only beautiful but also highly versatile, making them a perfect addition to any home. They work well as stylish laundry hampers, adding a touch of artisanal charm, or as unique plant holders that bring a bit of nature indoors. Ideal for families, these baskets can neatly hold toys for both children and pets, keeping play areas organized. In the entryway, they can store shoes, umbrellas, and other essentials. They are also great in the bathroom for organizing towels and toiletries. With their aesthetic appeal and practical functionality, these baskets seamlessly enhance both the organization and style of your living space.

These baskets combine sustainability with traditional craftsmanship. The weavers bind stalks of cattail grass, a robust local grass, with vibrant strips of recycled plastic, which are repurposed from leftover materials from prayer mat factories. This innovative use of eco-friendly materials not only provides a softer, more hand-friendly material compared to traditional reed strips but also adds a splash of color and durability to each piece.

Every basket is a reflection of fair trade principles, meticulously handmade by talented Wolof artisans. Designed for versatility and functionality, each basket features a fitted lid and inset woven handles, making them perfect for storage or as a decorative item in your home.

Celebrate the fusion of art, sustainability, and practicality with our Senegalese Baskets, and support the empowerment of Wolof women with every purchase. These baskets not only tell a story of cultural heritage but also contribute to a brighter future for the communities that create them.
