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.
