Mon Pote’s take on this 

A pretty and useful palm leaf brush from Basket Basket.

 

It's all in the Details 

 

Basket Basket source their baskets from Morocco where 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.  The brushes are made with waste products from this process.
