Our mission

Kawobazaar wants to help you organize your home with a wide range of handwoven baskets.
Each basket has its own purpose, and it's up to you to create it. A tidy home can save you unnecessary stress. The more uncluttered a room, the more you can relax and recharge your energy.
Their natural materials let you stay in touch with nature.

Our focus is always on quality, thanks to our selection of talented craftsmen and our rigorous quality control. Before being carefully packed for the big trip, each basket is cleaned, checked and pampered...

Weavers

The art of basket weaving in Africa is ancestral. The women transmit their knowledge from generation to generation. These baskets are used in the daily life of African women.

By combining the trends of the current decoration and the traditional weaving techniques,
Kawobazaar wishes to keep this unique know-how alive.

We work with a group of women who live in the most remote areas of Senegal. The weavers work at home, and prices are set by the community, with adjustments made according to the raw materials market. A large basket can take 4 to 5 days to weave. We respect their proud art. Each basket is paid at its fair value. This work enables them to feed their families and send their children to school.

Sustainability

Kawobazaar baskets are rigid and strong, made to last for years.
A meticulous process in which each thread is selected and then woven with a needle.
The main material used to weave our baskets is a natural fiber, a marsh grass called typha, combined with colored recycled plastic.

This invasive marsh grass is proliferating as a result of deforestation and drought. Today, we're trying to find new uses for it, such as replacing charcoal or insulating buildings.

Plastic waste is a veritable scourge on African coasts. Sosenap recycles tons of plastic waste every year, transforming the material into colorful thread.

Forest

EARTH SWEET HOME
We want to take care of our home, but we also want to protect our environment.

BASKET BY BASKET
Our aim is to plant trees in the Sahel, in partnership with Tree Nation, since 2023.

THE ROOTS OF LIFE
Deforestation is one of the greatest threats facing our planet today.
Trees purify the air we breathe, filter the water we drink and absorb carbon emissions,
but they are disappearing at an alarming rate.
