Small Sisal Handle Basket
This product is currently sold out.
Perfect to fill with goodies as a gift hamper or fill with toys as storage. Equally as happy out on a daily shop! Handmade in Morocco with palm leaves and sisal rope handles.
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.
