    Bringing style to storage, this sunny cream and yellow handmade basket is woven in rural Senegal using natural grasses and thin strips of plastic from the local prayer mat factory. It features a flat lid with cutout handles. Beautifully handwoven, these lidded baskets are a fun and different way to store everything from toys to craft supplies, linens to laundry.

    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.

    Beautiful!

    I bought this basket to store the 20lb bags of rice I usually buy. It’s perfect! Sturdy, beautifully made, smells faintly of grass, and livens up the kitchen with a happy color (much better than the giant rubbermaid that was taking up room on my floor). Thank you so much to whoever made this gorgeous piece, you are a master of your art and I appreciate your hard work :)
