Basket weavers in Ghana, West Africa, create this set of beautiful deep baskets from tough elephant grass. With short handles on each side, these all-natural storage baskets are designed to provide ample storage in any room of the home. A visually-interesting flecked pattern in deep blue-black adorns each basket. Sold as a set of two nesting baskets. Because this is a handcrafted item, each may vary slightly.

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.
