Palm leaf basket
Being highly decorative and super stylish at the same time these baskets are renowned for being strong and hard-wearing. They are hand woven by farming families in small villages of the Atlas Mountains by traditional methods passed down from generation to generation. Originally they are traditional work baskets in Morocco, being used for donkey panniers and in tile factories for carrying heavy loads so don’t worry about loading up your basket : it can carry more than you can 😉
Each basket takes 3 to 8 hours to weave, the palm leaves are woven into strips, which are then sewn together and the basket is built up in “rounds”.
You will find lots of uses for your Moroccan basket: you can store for instance blankets, scarves, toys, towels and the list goes on and on.
