Open Storage Basket - Senegal

$35.00

After growing sweetgrass in The Gambia, it is learned to be made into these baskets. To add color and texture, recycled plastic from the prayer rug is used. First sorted by color, then combined with the grass for the old baskets according to precise measurements. These measures are a new step in the procedure which has been added to the production process, by Fatima Jobe, to ensure consistency and quality. Later, these baskets are to be trimmed with leather for extra life of the handles to support heavy weight while keeping a nice look.

The baskets were originally used to store grain. Now its use has not only become more marked, but its shape and design are also changing.
