Description from Kaufmann Mercantile

Fair trade carryall baskets hand woven from palm fronds. Available with leather handles in two lengths. Produced using traditional methods by local artisans in Marrakech, Morocco.

A rustic palm straw basket immediately conjures up images of comfort and ease–mornings spent perusing the farmers’ market, warm afternoons at the beach, braided sides filled to the brim with fresh flowers and feathery carrot tops or stashed full of books and magazines beside a favorite easy chair. A common sight amongst shoppers in the markets of France and Italy, these smart, simple carryalls retain a brand of easy charm all their own.

Hand woven by women artisans in Marrakech from the fronds of abundant palm trees, these baskets are often connected and placed on the backs of donkeys to transport rubble, soil, and construction materials–a testament to their strength and durability. Imported by a French company devoted to promoting fair trade and preserving traditional rural handicrafts, these baskets are a true example of style meeting substance.
