Wolof women in Senegal weave this colorful storage container set by binding cattail stalks with strips of plastic salvaged as offcuts from a mat factory in Dakar.
The result is a useful piece of handcrafted decorative art that brings together natural materials, traditional weaving methods and modern recycled materials in a fun and whimsical way.
Sold as a set of three baskets. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
