La Basketry produces colorful woven baskets for the home, serving as wall décor, catch-alls, fruit baskets, and laundry bins.
Founded on a mission to empower women and support traditional weaving in rural Senegal, La Basketry donates 10% of its profits to local community initiatives. Currently, the company is making its donations to La Village Pilote, which supports homeless children in Senegal. The company employs and pays its artisans a fair wage to make baskets for sale on their online shop. La Basketry is also committed to using sustainable materials in its baskets: each one is made from long grass straws and recycled plastic twines.
La Basketry founders Tabara and Mamy N’Diaye were inspired to support and share with the world the traditional work of artisans from their home country, noting the sense of community weaving creates. The company’s signature bright colors and contemporary designs are catching the eye of the global home décor industry: La Basketry has recently been featured in House & Garden, House Beautiful, and The Telegraph’s Stella Magazine.
