This antique Moroccan bread basket is from the southern Morocco town of Amezrou, near the door to the Sahara Desert. Made in historic Amezrou, the basket is handwoven using subtly fragrant, naturally sustainable palm leaf, and is wrapped with hand-harvested wool dyed with natural organic dyes.
These baskets were traditionally used to transport bread dough to the neighborhood communal oven. Wonderful conical shape, reminiscent of a Moroccan tagine. Lid can easily be removed for storage. Extra large size, very hard to find. Absolutely one-of-a-kind.
Beautiful and functional! More than 100 years old.
Basket measures 76 x 36cm (30 x 14in).
All sales on Silver Sahara benefit the native artisans and help to ensure continuation of traditional craft techniques.
This item ships well packaged and securely direct from Morocco.
