A Marrakech Basket

  • Handwoven sweetgrass & sisal 
  • Hand-dyed
  • Lidded basket
  • Made from locally sourced natural fibres
  • 18 cm x 23 cm (height without lid 10 cm) 
  • Spot clean
  • Bright colours will fade in direct sunlight

  • We partner with artisans in Rwanda who make handwoven platters and baskets using raffia: a straw-like fibre that can be stripped from the inside of palm tree leaves. The fibres are found only in a special species of palm tree that grows abundantly across sub-Saharan Africa.
  • The artisans weave the raffia fibres using a needle and thread, creating a range of shapes, designs, and products that look beautiful in natural raffia tones or when hand-dyed.
