This classic-style laundry hamper storage basket features an overlapping lid and cutout handles. 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. Since this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.

Why Made Trade?
In the past I bought the largest of some other company’s hampers and it was kinda small. This one however is BIG. Definitely holds more than a large load of laundry. It’s also so nice looking.

I love MadeTrade! They originally sent me the wrong basket, but the swap was super easy. This basket is super durable, has a really good grass smell to it, and looks gr8 in my room :)
Love it, had to air it out, but it’s perfect. I shopped these for a while, I’m using it for laundry and I don’t love doing laundry but I do love the basket.
