Colorful Round Market Basket
The colorful Round Market-Style African Grass Basket from Alaffia is hand-woven by the Alaffia Basket Cooperative in West Africa. It is light but strong and supple enough to hold up to 50 pounds of produce.
Designed for Beauty and Function
Traditionally used to carry food and goods to and from farm and market, the elegantly functional round market-style basket features one handle attached in four places. It measures approximately:
- 10 inches deep
- 12 inches wide
- 16 inches from end to end
Alaffia Baskets are made with sustainably wild-harvested savanna grass, which is well adapted to the West African climate and grows abundantly with minimal water or nutrients.
Use of these baskets can reduce or eliminate your need for or consumption of plastic bags.
Fair-trade for Gender Equality and Cultural Sustainability
