This fair trade African oval basket is as sturdy as it is multi-functional. This basket is ideal for knitters and crafters, a beautiful and functional piece to store your projects! A natural basket with white detailing will surely inspire creativity in your home. Oval in shape, this basket measures in at 14" in width by 17" in length and is 10" deep. Wolof weavers in Senegal craft these baskets from local grasses interwoven with recycled plastic strips, resulting in durable, strong, and easy to clean baskets. Because they are handmade, there will be slight variations in size, shape, pattern, and color. This basket is a neutral blend of natural and white.

About the producers: This basket was woven in a co-op of about 100 Wolof women in the West African country of Senegal. It is not known which weaver began the practice of using plastic strips in the baskets, but the innovation results in a stronger basket with modern appeal. Swahili Wholesale is a small business based in Eugene, Oregon. It is a member of the Fair Trade Federation, and works in conjunction with the Peace Corps to help the Wolof weavers export their baskets to Western markets.
