Color

This delightful vintage Berber basket is handmade from raffia and wool. This shallow basket is natural raffia coloured with a simple but effective red and green accent decoration. Each design is unique to the artisan who made it, inspiration is taken from the surroundings for which it was made. It is thought that baskets with less detailed patterns were likely to have been woven near the plain of Marrakech whereas their more detailed counterparts were likely to have come from artisans in the Atlas mountains. These particular Berber baskets would make wonderful wall hangings or table centre-pieces, maybe to hold fruit.

Measuring approximately 54cm in diameter, this shallow 'plate-like' Berber Basket is larger than our other Berber baskets and features a handle for easy display. These Barber baskets ooze all of the charm that comes with owning something not only handmade but also vintage. Like many of our repurposed wares, these baskets have lived a life before and come with a story of their own. Due to their age, they are not in absolute pristine condition but they are soulful and remain a treasure to behold.
