Handwoven African Oval Basket
Oval baskets full of colorful fabrics are traditionally part of dowries in Togo, West Africa. Members of Alafﬁa basket cooperatives receive fair wages and health care for their families in return for indigenous skills and knowledge. This exchange empowers West African communities and preserves cultural heritage.
Care and Use: To reshape your basket, spray lightly with water, shape and air dry thoroughly. Avoid direct light for best color retention.
*Due to each basket’s one-of-a-kind characteristics, as well as the creative decision-making left to each weaver, the basket you receive may vary in color and pattern from the basket shown.
