Oval palm grass basket
Our oval palm grass basket is so beautiful and its lovely size makes it great as a bag for life. Made from sustainable palm leaf in Morocco, why on earth would you want to carry a plastic bag when you could have this?
A fashion accessory that is taking the world by storm.
We should all choose a favourite and use it for ever. I have had mine for 35 years!
It looks lovely as it is but also looks great decorated with wool tassels, wording and broaches.
It is comfortable to carry and nicely compact because of its shape.
Height: 38 cm
Length: 45 cm
Width: 20 cm
Please do note that there is variation in sizes owing to them being handmade so if the size of your basket is important, please give us a ring so we can find the perfect one for you!
We have long loved Morocco. As a child we would visit and our first recollections are of being offered couscous. It is still the bonding experience it was way back then. Being invited to share couscous with my lovely makers is one of the highlights of my visits.
Growing up in the south of Spain the cities of Sevilla, Córdoba and Granada were so close. The strong Moorish influences in Spain led to my love of Morocco and its style.
We have a carefully curated collection of stylish Moroccan homewares, jewellery and accessories all handcrafted and made by the talented artisans in their small workshops of both Marrakech and Essaouira. Each item is unique as each is handmade. No two items are ever quite the same. We have a collection of one offs which we display in our shop and other items collected in small numbers that are available on our website.We also have a selection available each weekend at our pop up stall at Altrincham Market.
Come and join us to select something unusual for yourself or a lovely original gift for a friend. We choose the more classic styles in muted colours but sometimes just cannot resist a flash of Moroccan colour!
We welcome you to BE where we are proud to source from ethical traders and artisans themselves. Many of our suppliers are found on our travels around local markets bringing income to our local communities. Thank you for supporting this trend.
