This small zip up palm grass basket "escargot" is a lovely summer handbag. Wear it as a crossbody bag or over your shoulder or pop it under your arm as a clutch bag too.
These baskets have a zip across the top making them secure and perfect for a day or summer night out . They have a long adjustable leather shoulder strap.
We refer to these as our "escargot" or snail baskets as they have the swirl effect of a snail and are our smallest basket.
These palm grass baskets are woven in the mountains of Morocco. They are made from sustainable palm grass and because they are handmade by a variety of women with varying thicknesses of palm, they do differ in size slightly.
You can leave a message when ordering if you have a preference as to smaller or larger.
Size: from 24 to 28 cms
OUR LOVE OF MOROCCO
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.
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
