Basket making has always been an important source of income for rural Moroccan villagers. As the style has become more popular internationally, many artisans have taken on the craft on a full time basis as means of meeting the growing demand and interest for Moroccan baskets.
Moroccan basket weaving is an ancient craft. They are made from natural plant fibres such as sustainable doum palm, reed and alfa grass. The fibres are woven together into long strips and then stitched together to make them into baskets.
