Natural Platter Basket - The Ndonn Layu Number 21 (45cm)


Layu platter baskets are a much loved traditional form of a Senegalese basket used for sifting grains. Our Layus come in a small edit of beautiful aqua, earthy tones reminiscent of coastal waters of Senegal. They can be used as platter baskets for holding tableware, fruits or just a beautiful centre piece on a table. We use ours as a design feature too - check out our edit on wall art, using a combination of our LAYU and FELE baskets.


NDONN baskets are a traditional way of weaving using reeds from Guinea Conakry and palm leaf fibres from Senegal. It’s a long lost skill that Fatou has helped to revive in a couple of villages enabling the grandmothers to pass on their skills to the younger generation of women.

Layus have a slight raised edge.
