As someone who cares for the environment, I have joined the no-plastic-bag movement going on in the U.S. And although I have a “collection” of reusable grocery bags at home, I have set my eyes on these woven french market grocery baskets made in Morocco.
The reason: I can not only put my groceries in one of these and pretend like I live in Provençe, but I can also use one of these very practical baskets to carry everything I need for a day at the beach or as a day bag for the summer.
On a recent trip to Key West I saw these being sold by a small boutique on Duval St. Set to find an online retailer that carried them, I came across Medina Baskets. Medina sells beautiful french grocery baskets in a variety of sizes and colors that are handmade in Morocco from palm leaf and water reed.
Medina’s eco-friendly and yet very stylish bags retail for about $40-$50 and can also be purchased at wholesale by visiting this website.
