The baskets are made with leaves from doum palm trees that line valleys and riverbeds in the south of Morocco. The work is carried out by a number of small family groups - no work takes place in factories - and all are paid a fair wage. The palm leaves are woven into strips and the strips are then sewn together to make up the baskets. The palm is splashed with water during weaving to help make it more malleable which helps make a tighter weave. Depending on the size, it takes 3-4 hours to make each basket.
Palm leaf baskets at the rim - there is sometimes a bit of a dip, this is not a fault it’s how the final strip of the palm is attached to the lower strip and part of the handmade process.
