Berber flat basket straw/black, unique piece
Unique flat basket made by hand in Morocco.
Dia: 40 cm
Berber baskets are made in the south of Morocco near the Sahara desert. Every basket is braided by hand and made from seagrass. After the basket is braided and finished, it is decorated with leftover pieces of wool. This is an astonishingly delicate technique, that’s why making one basket can take a few days.
Berber tribes in the south of Morocco decorate more expressively than the traditional arabic style, and more colorfully. This style is characterized by tribal shapes, geometric patterns and explosive use of color combinations. When Household Hardware picks out these baskets we especially look for the most unique patterns and color compositions. We never found the same basket twice, so you can be sure that your Berber basket is unique.If you order a colored basket and are looking for a specific color combination; please write this down at ‘notes’; we can see if we have this in stock for you. We also have baskets especially made for Household Hardware in several black-and-white designs.
