African laundry hampers bring amazing artisan craftsmanship into our living spaces. These laundry hampers are handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal. The black plastic strips that are used to hold the woven cattail stalks in place is sourced from a nearby prayer mat factory. If it were not used by the Senegalese women in their weaving, all of the leftover plastic would be dumped into the landfill. The use of plastic strips is an innovative and modern addition to the hampers, but makes for an even more durable and long-lasting product! By offering these beautiful hampers to you here, we are extending the women's reach far beyond their saturated local markets to homes across America.

Sold singly or as a nesting set of 2.
