Medina Market Basket - Spice


The medina - which means “town” - is the oldest part of Marrakesh. This area is completely walled-in and being there is like stepping back in time. Bustling with thousands of vendors offering everything from hand-crafted leather sandals to spices, we were charmed by the sights, the aromas, and especially the people. We’ve worked with our dear friend Hafid to create these handcrafted pieces just for you. We treasure our relationship and the collaboration with him and the local artisans who brought the Medina Market Baskets to life for us. These intricately constructed baskets are woven in one village and then lovingly finished out in another village with hand-dyed leather details that are delicately sewn on the handles and an accent Mer-Sea tag.

LOVE it.

It was a pleasure taking it to work, filled with my notebooks and supplies. Two women commented on it. Unusual to find, and people notice it. I'd left the cute tags and tassels on. They were able to go to the site to get one themselves. It is sturdy and the leather accents are wonderful. The covered handle makes it comfortable to carry. I put some laminated cardboard on the inside bottom. Another brand I had years ago (less tightly woven) busted through the bottom. I want to protect this one. Fashionable, and great size. The medium holds binders, planners, and books. Well worth the price!

Surprising favorite

I bought the Medina Market Basket before a family trip to Hawaii. Thinking it would be a great "head to the beach bag", I ended up using it the entire time. When I got home, it became my favorite "bag". I put a small zipper bag inside to keep keys and cards in one place. This hard working bags gets all sorts of compliments too.
