African Prayer Hamper Medium

Be the first to review this product

Out of stock.

I adore these prayer mat hampers, which look gorgeous when accenting contemporary or rustic décor. Functional and beautiful, they blend traditional weaving techniques with modern materials made from recycled prayer mats. The elaborate coil design, passed down through generations by Wolof women in rural Senegal, creates a streamlined silhouette. I find they are a creative storage solution—as strong and lovely as the women who create them. -JG
