medium covered hamper #1

African laundry hampers bring amazing artisan craftsmanship into your home. They come in a variety of colors and patterns to complement any decor.

Our laundry hampers are handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal. Working together with the Peace Corps, we are extending the women's reach far beyond their saturated local markets to homes across America.

Using locally harvested cattail stalks and strips of plastic used to make prayer mats, the women bring supplemental income to their households by weaving baskets between their daily duties.
