Woven Cattail White Storage Basket
Wolof women in Senegal weave these storage baskets by binding cattail stalks with strips of plastic recycled from prayer mats. The result is a useful handcrafted piece that brings together natural materials, traditional weaving methods and modern recycled materials in a fun and whimsical way. Since many of the men in the community work far from the village, weaving baskets allows the women of the household to contribute to the family's income while staying home. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.
