Multicolored Market

Handwover by artisans in Ghana, the Bolga basket from Adaara does double duty—the thick leather strap lets it take a heavy load home from the farmer's market.

Waterproof Basket

I love the quiet colors of this traditional Zulu Ukhamba basket, $220, from Baskets from Africa. The woven-grass design is made watertight by rubbing wet cornmeal inside, and when liquid is added, the coils swell to tighten the seal.
