Wolof women in rural Senegal craft beautiful baskets from cattail stalks and long strips of plastic salvaged from the production of plastic mats. Traditionally, such baskets were used to winnow grain and store food and other articles in the home, but modern synthetic materials update the baskets with eye-popping color.

This striking and useful basket features a black background littered with colorful triangles, and complements many of our other baskets and hampers from Senegal.
