silver oval bread basket
- Origin: Senegal
- Size: 14"L x 12"W x 4"T
- Materials: Typha (cattail) stalks, plastic
- Wolof women in rural Senegal craft these vibrant baskets from typha stalks (cattails) and strips of plastic used in the production of bazin mats. 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.
