Artisanne's baskets are unique, beautiful and exquisitely handmade by artisan women in small villages near Thies in Senegal, where the art of basket weaving spans back generations.
Contemporary shapes are meticulously handwoven in the traditional Senegalese Wolof weaving style, whilst introducing modern colours and designs. The baskets are woven using a local traditional grass called ndiorokh and long strips of plastic, traditionally used for making bazin, or prayer, mats.
Artisanne baskets are perfect for storing blankets, toys, laundry, shoes and anything else that needs to be stowed away, whilst at the same time making a lovely and decorative addition to your decor.
Artisanne works closely and directly with the women weavers in Senegal to ensure they receive fair payment, thereby allowing them to support their families and communities. We are thrilled to be working with them and to support this worthwhile project.
