This bag was handcrafted in Marrakech, each basket is woven by hand for hours from the leaves of the Date Palm. The palm leaf is known for being hard and strong-wearing, and these techniques have been used for generations to make traditional work baskets used for farming. These baskets are made by Berber women in their homes, with Morocco being extremely male dominated, it is encouraged that women stay home. However, Azzedin who runs his stall in Marrakech gives them an opportunity to find work in the comforts of their own home to support their families. The baskets vary in their weave and finish, making your #AmeCandy unique in it’s own way.
