A thick and sturdy antique Moroccan flat basket from the Sahara. Handcrafted in the southern Morocco town of Amezrou, near the door to the Sahara Desert, the basket was handwoven using subtly fragrant, naturally sustainable palm leaf, and is wrapped with hand-harvested wool dyed with natural organic dyes.
Amazingly vivid despite its age, this Moroccan flat basket ha eye-catching greens, purple, black, reds and yellows. You can display the basket on the wall for a pop of color, or it works very well as a jewelry or key holder or a centerpiece. You'll find these so handy you'll want a few!
This Moroccan coil basket is absolutely one-of-a-kind.
Beautiful and functional!
Basket measures 26x 28cm with hanger (approx. 10 x 11in). One handle.
