A joyous and colorful antique Moroccan flat basket from the Sahara. Bring the vibrant, cheerful energy of Morocco into your home. 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 is a vibrant explosion of red, blue, green, pink, black 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!
