This beautiful hand made Medina Straw Basket Backpack or French Market Backpack as it is also commonly known, is handwoven in Morocco from palm leaves which gives it a beautiful herringbone texture of sturdy natural fibers.
Perfect for shopping trips to your local market or supermarket, the Straw Basket Backpack is generous in size and strong enough to easily transport all your shopping. It has short leather handles, but if the weight of all your shopping becomes too much then the leather backpack straps enable the basket to quickly change from handheld bag to a more comfortable backpack. As a result it is also an ideal beach bag, perfect for carrying wet or dry swim towels, costume, etc.
The added beauty of these backpack baskets is that because they are handmade, none of them are the same. They have a rustic appearance ( not a “perfect” look of machine made ones). There can be some imperfections like a dent, slightly different colouring, etc; all of which to add to the charm of a totally unique, handmade item.
