The Palm Leaf Storage Basket with Handles handmade in Tunisia by artisan Bushra is a beautiful and practical storage solution created with care and skill. Bushra, the Tunisian artisan, employs traditional weaving techniques and locally sourced palm leaves to craft these baskets.
The process begins with gathering palm leaves, usually from the doum palm tree, which is native to Tunisia. The leaves are carefully selected and prepared, removing any thorns or unwanted parts. Bushra then weaves the leaves together, skillfully creating the basket’s structure and incorporating unique patterns and designs.
The addition of handles enhances the basket’s functionality, allowing for easy transportation and movement. This feature makes it ideal for storing various items like blankets, toys, magazines, or even acting as a small laundry basket.

Moreover, these handmade baskets are environmentally friendly, as they are crafted from sustainable and biodegradable materials. They add a touch of natural elegance to any room or space, showcasing the beauty of Tunisian craftsmanship and cultural heritage.
