Natural Laundry Basket - Ndonn Douwe with Gold Fabric Trim
Ndonn Douwe with Gold Fabric Trim
Emmela is the first to bring you NDONN baskets They are very special baskets handcrafted only by a handful of skilled weavers in a couple of villages in Senegal.
Fatou @ IMADI has secured small batch production in two villages. It’s important to her keep this skill alive whilst the knowledge is available. It’s the older generation - the grandmothers that are teaching the younger women in the village to weave the Ndonns. It provides a pension plan for a generation of women that wouldn’t necessarily have the means of earning a wage.
- NDONN baskets are made with reeds from Guinea Conakry and palm leaf fibres from Senegal.
- African Fabric trim from Aso Oke Cloth from Nigeria.
- Medium Douwe basket Height 70cms, Width at rim 36cms, widest point 43cms
