Swahili African Modern exists to bring enchanting African handicraft to a global audience, while supporting the artisan communities responsible for it. The Wolof women of rural Senegal created this laundry hamper by hand, using only dried cattail stalks and strips of plastic salvaged from prayer mats. Featuring a robust shape with two built-in handles, this basket does dirty clothes duty with genuine artistic flair. 

Includes lid and 2 cutout side handles.

Due to its handmade nature, each item will vary slightly in size and appearance. The Wolof women have been crafting these coil-style baskets for generations. Though traditionally made from cattail stalks and reeds, today's baskets are bound using strips of plastic that are either salvaged both from old prayer mats or purchased from a mat factory in Dakar.
