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.
