African laundry hampers bring amazing artisan craftsmanship into our living spaces. Using recycled plastic strips from a nearby factory and the harvested stalks of cattail plants, they artistically weave these incredibly durable and beautiful hampers! Our laundry hampers are handwoven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal. The women's reach far beyond their saturated local markets to homes across America.
