Cairo Market Basket
Baskets were discovered as far back as 12,000 years ago in Faiyum Egypt. They had a wide range of uses such as gathering and carrying food, baby carriers, catching fish, and even bird cages. The basket is still used today for many things but one of the most popular is in home décor. There are many markets or bazaars in Cairo that one can go to and find an abundance of local spices, handcrafted items, pottery, and much more. You never know what magical treasure you will find.
This basket is a fine example of what you will find at an Egyptian market. With its delicately woven willow frame and its cute wooden handles, this basket would look good as a centerpiece on a dining table or on a side table filled with faux flowers.
