'2019 Independent Best Buy Laundry Basket'

We have worked hard with our skilled artisans to create the perfect Alibaba laundry basket. Not only are they beautiful but also ideal for laundry or storing linen, blankets or children's toys.

Artisanne works directly - without middlemen - with the artisans who are based in a village near Thiès in Senegal. Direct access and communication with the artisans allows us to design our own styles and guarantee the top-end quality that Artisanne is renowned for.

The Fair Trade Alibaba Laundry Basket is weaved from sustainable ndiorokh grasses intertwined with long strips of repurposed plastic traditionally used for making bazin mats similar to prayer mats. Its snug-fitting distinctive Alibaba lid ensures the content stays hidden and the integrated handles make it easy to carry.    

Its unique hand crafted nature means that no two baskets are exactly the same.

Each basket has braided leather handles and arrives in its own reusable cotton drawstring bag, handmade in Senegal.
