Moroccan Moses Doll Basket

WEAVING WITH PALM LEAVES AND BAMBOO IS A

CENTURIES-OLD TRADITION IN MOROCCO THAT HAS 

LASTED MANY GENERATIONS. EVEN NOW THE WEAVING

IS STILL DONE THE SAME WAY AND WITH THE SAME MATERIALS.

These charming Moroccan doll baskets are hand woven by farming

families in small villages of the Atlas Mountains by traditional

methods passed down from generation to generation.

The Moroccan basket is crafted

from leaves of the date palm (Phoenix Dactylifera),

which grows abundantly in the region. After the baskets are woven,

they are collected and brought to a more central location where

they are finished off by hand. Each basket is unique, so minor

variations in weaving and finish are to be expected and treasured.

As well as being stylish and beautiful these baskets are renowned

for being strong and hard-wearing. Traditionally

Moroccan baskets were used for such things as donkey panniers

and in tile factories for carrying heavy loads so don’t worry about

loading up your basket – it can carry more than you can!

Each basket takes 3 to 8 hours to weave, depending on size and style.

The palm leaves are woven into strips, which are then sewn together

and the basket is built up in “rounds”.

You may find lots of other uses for your Moroccan doll basket

once your little one outgrows it.
