This extra large basket is a beautiful, yet practical decorator item. Use it as a wood storage basket or to store toys or cushions.
Baskets are handmade and hand crafted. The baskets are made from palm leaf fronds. The palm leaf fronds are sustainably harvested each year in July, after which the weaving starts, going through to December. The leather is tanned in Marrakech. The styles originate from the Atlas mountains north of Fez, the desert regions out from Marrakech and the coast near Essouiara. Each using local materials.
The weavers operate in collectives and are largely women working from home. The baskets then come to the depot to have the leather finishing touches – handle, decoration or trim added.
