These baskets are made in the Atlas Mountains behind Marrakech by artisans who bring them in huge stacks to the sellers in the souk. One of our favourites is Hadda who runs her little business from a lock up on the edge of the Spice Square opposite Cafe des Epices.
Don’t expect to get a good deal there though unless you have the bartering skills of a nomadic Berber!
These market baskets are made by artisans using age old techniques which they learn in their families.
