Respect to my Brave Talented Senegal Basket Weaver
The Wolof people in Senegal are known for weaving colorful baskets from locally harvested cattail stalks and strips of plastic. They weave handmade baskets of different sizes and shapes over banter and shared laughs. These groups of women empower themselves and their tribe through the practice of this traditional craft.
