A traditional basket shape with short pale leather handles, ideal for shopping! Handmade in Morocco from start to finish.

The doum palm tree is grown for it's dates but it's leaves have many uses including these baskets! The palm leaves are woven into strips and sewn together, they are then splashed with water to make them more malleable and to give a tighter weave. Once the basket is woven they are transported to a seamstress so the leather handles can be sewn on. The twine used for stitching the handles is coated in beeswax for a smoother and stronger finish. These baskets are beautifully made using traditional and sustainable techniques.
