We looked high and low to find the perfect French Market Baskets for our Coastal Farmhouse shoppers. Commonly used throughout France and Europe to carry fresh produce, cheeses, and baguettes from outdoor markets, our French Market Baskets serve many additional purposes. Because they are lightweight and strong they are ideal for food shopping, a chic weekend and beach tote, perfect for farmer’s markets, and provide a stylish solution for home storage and organization- perfect for toys, firewood, magazines, newspapers, towels, knitting wool and so much more. Our French Market Baskets come finished with sturdy leather or sisal handles depending on the style. They are can be dipped in water and reshaped if necessary. Treat leather with a quality leather cream.
Sustainable and Locally Made
Our collection of French Market Baskets is ethically produced and provide meaningful employment for local farmers and women in villages throughout Morocco. The Moroccan handcraft industry is one of the main economic engines of the Moroccan economy. The Moroccan craftswomen and men are skilled artisans who typically have an undeniable artistry and impeccable expertise implementing traditional weaving techniques. Every basket is created from fallen palm fronds and water reed and provide a wonderful, eco-friendly alternative to plastic bags. The natural and handmade nature of our French Market Baskets reflects our belief that the things we surround ourselves with should possess a soul, a history, and a purpose. They should help us in connecting to the world around us.
10% of the proceeds from the sale of our French Market Baskets will be donated to Her Future Coalition, a grassroots nonprofit that provide shelter, education, and high-wage employment to survivors of human trafficking and extreme abuse so that they may remain forever free.
