Artisans Solidaires Kasserine
HALFA FRUIT BASKET
Following in their mothers’ tradition, the Artisans Solidaires Kasserine produce ancestral crafts in their homes entirely by hand, patiently weaving rugged halfa grass into neat baskets exported to the capital of Tunis and now overseas to the U.S. for the first time. This shapely halfa fruit bowl applies ancient skills to a modern design, bridging old and new in one lovely kitchen staple that travels from the craftswoman’s home to yours.

Their pieces are inspired by the patterns and shapes of the traditional Tunisian home updated for modern aesthetics.
