African laundry hampers bring beautiful artisan craftsmanship into our living spaces. Our laundry hampers are hand woven by an association of more than 100 rural Wolof women in the West African nation of Senegal. Through a project that started as a collaboration with the Peace Corps, rural Wolof women are uplifting their communities through export partnership.

Sold singly. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly.

Origin: Senegal

Size: 16"L x 12"W x 10"T (to top of basket), 18"T (to top of handles)

Materials: Plastic strips, typha stalks

We believe that hardworking African artisans, producers and export agents hold the key to their own personal success, and that the path to success requires a steady, committed pace. We can extend each artisan's channel of trade from local markets to the global marketplace, all the while providing them with options to work from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Secure in the knowledge that the fair payment they receive will not be reduced by traveling expenses, childcare costs and haggled prices, most artisans in the network promote their family's future by using earnings to put food on the table and pay educational expenses for their children.

Fair Trade Federation, a group of like-minded companies and organizations that adhere to:
providing fair payment to workers in developing nations
educating artisans and workers to increase their potential for advancement
ensuring the rights of children
developing products and processes that protect and conserve the natural environment
promoting fair trade as the standard in commercial exchanges
