French Market Basket
Our classic, lovely and very functional French Market basket! Hand woven from palm, with 2 leather handles on each side-- one long, one short-- for flexibility of use, this lovely and simple bag is great in so many places and for so many uses. Lovely at the farmers market, the beach, or as a great and easy basket for new mothers to carry necessities from room to room!
12 h and 15 across, though sizes are averages.
Please note: Our straw bags are made by hand and the slightly uneven edge on the top of the basket is a production feature of the bag and not a flaw. If you end up getting your bag wet, let it dry in the sun thoroughly. Loose bits of straw from time to time are normal and can be tucked back into basket or snipped off.
To clean, entire bag may be submerged in soapy water, scrubbed with a soft brush, rinsed and set in the sun to dry. Allow the basket to dry thoroughly to prevent mold.
To clean leather, use a mild leather soap.
If treated well, our market bags should last for years—they are sturdy, flexible and strong. They are woven from wild grasses, water reed or palm leaf, and dyed leather.
