Overview

Wolof women in Senegal weave this colorful storage container by binding cattail stalks with strips of plastic recycled from prayer mats or purchased new at the mat factory in Dakar.

The result is a useful piece of handcrafted decorative art that brings together natural materials, traditional weaving methods and modern recycled materials in a fun and whimsical way.

Sold singly. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.

Beautiful little basket

This basket smelled so good! Like tea. It's the perfect size for rolled up hand towels. Its beautifully and tightly woven and the lid sits snuggly on it. The pink is a deep almost coral-fuschia and really pretty.
