This large panier (French for basket) is handmade by farmers in Morocco using traditional methods. They are hand woven from strips of fallen palm fronds which are then sewn together in rounds.
Sturdy leather handles are made from goat, cow or camel hide, also a sustainable by-product, which would otherwise go to waste. These baskets provide the farmers with an income during the winter when there are no crops
Each basket is unique, no two are quite the same so these measurements are only a rough guideline. It is 60cm in height, 46cm dia across the top, 32cm dia base and the handle length 26cm.
The ultimate sustainable shopper, it is stylish, light-weight but strong and ideal for food shopping, the beach and/or storage.
