The sunsets in Marrakech are some of the most stunning on earth. The desert sky juxtaposed against the bold and unpredictable colors of the sky at dusk are incredible. These baskets were designed and crafted by an artist in the souk in Marrakech. He spoke of the sunsets with their pink and purple hues as the inspiration for the patterns he weaves into his baskets. They are extremely labor intensive as the dried palm branches used are woven and pulled by hand.The colors and patterns are all slightly different and somewhat unpredictable like the colors of the sunset.
