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.

These amply sized laundry hamper storage baskets feature braided plastic handles and a snug-fitting removable lid.

Sold singly. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
