Imagine the smell of freshly baked bread, its sweet scent filling your nose as you walk into your front door. In Morocco, every home you enter will greet you in this way, with the pleasant aroma of freshly baked bread hanging in the air. Just like the common smell of bread, our Moroccan bread baskets are a common sight inside every Moroccan home. They sit on top of tables, surrounded by homemade meals, complementing the spices of the meats and seasonings of the vegetables. They are passed around, from family member to family, with each person picking out the piece of bread to accompany their dishes.

Our Moroccan bread baskets are handmade in villages all along the outskirts of Marrakech. They are traditionally coiled, with material from natural raffia fibers. As each basket is carefully crafted and woven by hand, no two are the exact same, with their sizes and shapes varying slightly.

Moroccan bread baskets befitting of any space

While Moroccans traditionally use these bread baskets to maintain the temperature of the bread for their meals, the beauty of these baskets is that they are versatile and can be used in most any way you desire. Stick to tradition and keep dinner buns fresh out of the oven in your Moroccan bread basket, or keep it on display and add an artisan touch anywhere in the home.
