Palm basket-making, Taza

Cestería en palmito de Taza

This project, carried out in the province of Taza, worked on creating traditional products in hand made palm fibre. Due to this intervention, these products experienced a great evolution as it can be seen in the innovative colours and shapes, or in the finer and more varied braids. There are also new techniques of handmade seaming, or in the work carried out with machines. Other aspects such as decoration and craftwork finishing, give the new baskets and hats a fresh style in which imagination works together with functionality.
