This traditional Rainbow Spiral Warming Basket is woven with locally harvested cattail stalks and plastic strips by a network of Wolof women in Senegal. They are often used to keep food warm as a towel is used to line the inside and food is wrapped in the towel and the lid is secured to help keep it warm. Handcrafted, each will vary slightly.
