I was at the Culver City Farmers market last week and there was a Ghanian vendor with these beautiful baskets for sale. Lightweight, colorful and versatile, African baskets are such a perfect storage solution for the home.
Great for storing (hiding) kids toys in the living room, magazines in the bathroom, fruit, bread, a place to toss your keys or mail into when you get home–or to be hung on the wall in gallery style–there are endless possibilities, really. Which are your favorites?? I’m gravitating towards those last laundry baskets–so modern and geometric. Would be a fun thing to learn how to make, yes?
