These handcrafted baskets may vary slightly as compared to the the photos, as each set is unique.

    This pared-down set of handcrafted baskets features three nesting sizes in shades of white, cream and gray. Each basket is carefully handmade by a talented Wolof woman in rural Senegal.

    Swahili African Modern showcases the brilliance of modern African design through an exquisite collection of artisan-crafted home decor. All Swahili African Modern’s baskets and hampers are hand-woven by the Wolof women of Senegal who are traditional, artisan basket weavers. Each basket and hamper is made with natural cattails and reeds, accented by colorful strips of plastic from used prayer mats.

    Swahili African Modern’s women artisans weave baskets from the comfort of their villages and are paid well above the living wage. Through the creation of these heritage products, Swahili African Modern helps the Wolof women find a more secure market for their handmade baskets and build greater prosperity in the region. As a result, women have become the primary source of income for their families and communities. Since Swahili African Modern began working in Senegal in 2008 they’ve helped the Wolof women sell thousands of their baskets to stores and individuals around the world. Swahili African Modern is fair trade certified by Fair Trade Federation.
