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
  • This basket doesn’t come with a leather tassel but please do get on contact via email (info@emmela.co.uk) to see if there is a perfect tassel for us to add to the order free of charge. Subject to availability.
