Wolof women in rural Senegal craft these vibrant baskets from cattail stalks and strips of plastic used in the production of bazin mats. Since many of the men in the community work far from the village, weaving baskets allows the women of the household to contribute to the family's income. Each basket is hand crafted so there will be some slight variation to each basket. With this purchase you will help keep a viable source of income to these local African artisans.
