|African Market Basket - Morocco - Approximately 25 Inches Across - #MR112|
Approximately 25" Across x 14" Tall (plus handle) x 7" Deep
Moroccan palm leaves are woven together to create strong, flexible, roomy totes that are perfect for a trip to the market. The blue-dyed leather handles are amazingly soft.
- You will receive a basket nearly identical to the one pictured above, but please keep in mind that each one is hand-woven and varies slightly in design and color.
- The blue leather on the trim and handles is soft, and adds to the durability.
- Sometimes called "French Market Baskets," these palm leaf totes come from the coastal area of Central Morocco.
- A "flat-plaited" weaving technique is used to make these sturdy and useful baskets. The palm must be harvested at just the right time to get the proper color, flexibility, and strength.
