All About: Our Berber Baskets
It has long been our dream to head out to Morocco to hunt for collections of original and traditional Moroccan products for ibbi and earlier this year we were fortunate enough to do just that. As well as our hand crafted rugs and pottery, we also found beautiful authentic Berber Baskets in a vast array of dazzling contrasting colours.
Traditionally created to store ‘khobz’ flatbreads or sugar, these baskets are hand crafted from palm leaves and then wrapped with wool, in all manner of designs and patterns. No two pots are ever the same and their kooky shapes, tiny fraying threads and slight imperfections are all just part of their authentic Moroccan character.
And now theses authentic baskets are the perfect pop of colour for any mantlepiece, shelf or windowsill in your home. Declutter bathrooms and bedside tables, use them to store trinkets or even pop in a plant – and give a Berber Basket a new lease of life!
