Palm leaf baskets :: always trendy & eco friendly

See what I did there with that rhyme in the title, right ? ;)

I have always admired those beach bags made out of palm leafs, but never found one big enough to carry all our beach "necessities" from diggers through excavators to even more construction vehicles.  

Only recently I've opened my eyes wider to realize, not even the designs and objects that palm leafs can be turned into are limitless, it is also a great way to save the environment and support small local makers.

Most common items made of palm leafs

  • beach bags
  • storage baskets
  • coasters
  • bowls

Next time you are lost while searching for some nice "Made in Egypt" items, remember me :)

Please, Cairo friends. If you know a place where these can be purchased, other than from a street vendors, leave a tip in the comment. Thanks :)
