These straw baskets are made in a small village just outside Marrakech. The sequins are stitched on by hand by local women who are working together to build a co-operative. By supporting the establishment of this co-operative, we are helping the women to fund their children’s education and improve their own living standards at the same time.

Please note that the sequins are sewn on not glued as is often the case with baskets like this. The extra work is labour intensive which is why the price is slightly higher than the embroidered baskets but it means that the sequins will stay on securely.

    Thank you Nikki for this beautiful basket – it will sprinkle some Midlife Chic glamour into my NZ summer! As a dedicated fan of your blog for the last five years I bought this partly to support your fledgling business as a thank you for the joy your blog has brought me. But actually the basket is of excellent quality so my purchase stands as a good decision on its own merits.

    The basket is great quality, tightly woven, a beautiful straw colour with the silver sequins being attached firmly. The leather handles add a nice touch and will make for comfortable carrying. I am undecided as to whether the tassel is too sparkly, so I may be remove it, but it certainly adds some extra bling. The bag has ample carrying capacity but will be better for lighter loads – I’m thinking market produce, or towels and a book, rather than anything too heavy.

    I intend to use it as a beach bag, but it will also be used to dress up a smart casual outfit on trips to Wellington. I’m a big fan of women who are 40 plus having fun with their clothing, enjoying colourful lives (and fashionable clothing!) with no apologies. This bag happily fits into that mindset.
