Petite perfection, our market bag makes for a beautiful accessory and even doubles up as handy home storage.
Often mistaken for straw or wicker, our baskets are handwoven using palm leaf in villages just outside of Marrakech, Morocco. The palm leaf is harvested from the Doum plant which grows wild across the Moroccan countryside and is a natural, eco-friendly and sustainable fibre. You will find a little bump on the edge of every basket where the baskets are tied off after being woven in the round. Versatile, well-sized and sturdy they are great for carrying all your daily essentials.
Please note that when the leaves are freshly picked they can sometimes appear slightly green in hue, as they age this will develop into a neutral tone.
Our baskets are very sturdy so don't be afraid to pack down into your suitcases and fold if necessary. Try to keep them away from amp weather; slowly dry next to a gentle heat source if wet.
