Nesting Handmade Woven Storage Basket Set - Grey Block
Wolof women in rural Senegal weave these storage baskets from cattail stalks and long strips of plastic typically used to create rugs and prayer mats.
These useful nesting baskets feature cutout handles on the largest two sizes and a random block pattern. They offer a beautifully sculptured exterior while hiding away a number of loose objects. A great addition to any home decor!
Because this is a handcrafted item, shape may vary slightly.
This item is fairly made in Africa. It has made its way here today thanks to the hard work of Leslie Mittelberg building a network of artisans across Africa. Each artisan is able to work from the comfort of their own home and community. The fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs or haggled prices. The artisans use their earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.
What better way to give than from one's hands to another. Our spirited handmade store offers gift ideas that support communities and connect cultures. Stories are shared through our handmade gifts from all over the world.

What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a market based approach to solving social, economic and environmental injustice. Under Fair Trade standards, producers in developing countries are afforded economic opportunities to better their living conditions and have more control over their own lives. At the same time, environmental sustainability is given high priority as a key element in growth for current and future generations. Learn more about Fair Trade >
