These original French market baskets are hand made in Morocco as they have been for generations.
The ultimate sustainable shopping basket, farmers in the Atlas Mountains produce the baskets as a form of secondary income during the winter months. Using traditional methods, they weave strips from fallen palm fronds, which are then sewn together in ‘rounds’ (the more rounds, the larger the bag). Each one, which takes up to eight hours to weave, depending on the size, is unique – no two are quite the same.
Lightweight and strong, the larger baskets are ideal for supermarket (goes straight from trolley to boot without all the plastic) or farmer’s market shopping, as a beach or pool bag, a weekender or washing basket. They also make perfect picnic hampers.
The small and baby baskets make lovely gift hampers or storage baskets at home – for toys, vegetables, knitting or magazines. They make a perfect present – in their own right or filled with treasures.
