senegalese sunset grain basket
Wolof women in rural Senegal craft these vibrant baskets from cattail stalks and strips of plastic used in the production of outdoor mats.
Weaving baskets allows the women of the household to contribute to the family's income while preserving traditional craft forms.
Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly. The baskets are woven from locally harvested cattail stalks and strips of plastic used to make prayer mats.
