Large Yellow White Oval Storage Basket from Senegal.

Basket weaving has been practiced in Senegal for generations by women artisans of wolof community in Senegal. Baskets are traditionally woven by binding cattail stalks, a thick local grass, with thin strips of palm frond. Palm fronds are difficult to work with and are rough on the hands of the weavers, so strips of plastic have replaced palm fronds to reduce discomfort during the weaving process. Plastic used for basket weaving is recycled from prayer mats. 

This is a large size storage basket with yellow and white color blocks. Basket measures 16" in length, 14" in width and 10" in height. Store your knitting or craft supplies in this easy to use storage basket. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.
