Checkerboard Warming Basket
- Handmade by experienced Senegalese Wolof craftswomen, these fair trade baskets are sturdy and can last for decades. Using locally harvested cattail stalks and strips of plastic used to make prayer mats, these women bring supplemental income to their households by weaving baskets like this traditionally shaped warming basket. The basket's domed lid allows for an impressive amount of storage. Measures 12"D x 14"T; size may vary slightly. Made of Typha (cattails), plastic strips.
