Almasi Medium Typha Hamper Basket
The ALMASI medium typha hamper basket brings amazing Senegalese artisanry to your home. It exemplifies amazing craftsmanship. The hampers are hand-woven by a cooperative of more than 100 Wolof women in West African using natural grasses and plastic strips. Through a project that started as a collaboration with the Peace Corps, rural Wolof women are uplifting their communities via export partnership.
Each basket includes a lid and braided handles. In Senegal, the Wolof are the largest ethnic group. Weaving these baskets enables Wolof women from Senegal to earn an income from the comfort of their community where they are able to raise their children and families and earn a fair wage with dignity while supporting their families in the comfort of their own communities. You will see the amazing skill it takes to craft this basket which will last for generations. It is a beautiful and meaningful addition to any décor. This is a fair-trade product from a woman-owned organization.
