AWA Extra Large Typha Basket Hamper


The Awa extra-large handwoven typha basket hamper brings amazing Senegalese artisanry to your home.  It exemplifies amazing craftsmanship. It is hand-woven by a cooperative of more than 100 Wolof women in West African using natural grasses and plastic strips in a zig zag tan and beige pattern.  The neutral tones work with most decors and the geometric pattern allow for a modern, but classic touch.  Each basket is woven in the coil style by binding dried cattail stalks with plastic strips salvaged from a Dakar mat factory. The combination of natural and synthetic materials beautifully displays modern African artistry.  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.

Dust or vacuum your basket on a regular basis, wiping with a damp cloth if necessary.  Do not rub stains or spills from your basket as this may spread the stain and loosen the fibers.  Do not submerge or get your basket wet.  Be sure to keep out of direct sunlight, or color can change and fade.
