White Lidded Storage Box with Shades of Blue Dots
Swahili African Modern
Size: 11"D x 5"T
Materials: Typha (cattails), plastic strips
Wolof women in Senegal weave this colorful storage container by binding cattail stalks with colorful strips of plastic purchased as salvaged end cuts at a mat factory in Dakar.
The result is a useful piece of handcrafted decorative art that brings together natural materials, traditional weaving methods and modern recycled materials in a fun and whimsical way.
