Senegalese Tangerine Basket
In rural Senegal, Africa the Wolof women weavers skillfully hand weave cattail stalks and up cycled plastic scraps into our Senegalese Tangerine Basket. A cheery pop of orange and white come from the plastic strips which are salvaged scraps from prayer mat production. A wonderful resource that adds a whole new look to a traditional basket.
The ethically made Senegalese Tangerine Basket is an example of a traditionally functional item brought to life and made into art. Baskets such as these have been used for generations to winnow grain and for storage in the home. With ingenuity and skill a modern material is added to be appreciated in any home worldwide.
