Handmade - Fair Trade
 
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.
Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
 
Measures approximately 14"D x 19"H.
