Mon Pote’s take on this
We love stocking a wide range of sustainable baskets. These beauties from our newest basket supplier Basket Basket and are a great addition to the range. Baskets can be used as a handy park or beach bag in summer but make sure you keep one of our recycled cotton throws at the bottom for quick and easy picnics, grassy rest stops or jsut something to sit on at the beach or on a walk. In the cooler months, use them in the home to store throws, rugs, cushions, toys, newspapers or shoes. Or whatever you choose to use it for - it's your lovely basket and will be with you forever.
It's all in the details
Basket Basket source their baskets from Moroccowhere they are are made with leaves from doum palm trees that line valleys and riverbeds in the south. They are an essential source of income providing dates, which is a growing export product for Morocco, as well as helping prevent soil erosion from the strong desert winds and they also help shade the crops and fruit trees that grow beneath them. The leaves are used to make baskets, mats, ropes, etc etc. Our baskets are woven in villages about 2 hours from Fès in north Morocco.
