Baby French Shopping Basket
These dinky little baskets are perfect for children or for using in the home, storing food or bathroom items. Ideal as a present which you can fill with sweets and treats or for role play imaginative games with your little one. Take them out grocery shopping and task them out with filling it up!
These baskets are made with leaves from sustainable doum trees that line valleys and riverbeds in the south of Morocco. These trees help prevent soil erosion from the strong desert winds and they also help shade the crops and fruit trees that grow beneath them. The trunks are used for house building and obviously the fronds are then used to make baskets, mats, ropes etc, nothing goes to waste! The weaving is done in villages in north Morocco, by a number of small family/cooperative groups - no work takes place in factories.
Due to the baskets being handwoven they are all slightly different and therefore unique.
