Basket Origin

Just where do 1260 Chic source many of the gorgeous baskets offered? A small Moroccan village of approximately 300 people located in the Essaouria Province where the art of weaving baskets is the community’s main source of income. The business is a family oriented activity, based out of each artisan’s home or communal area, including both men and women.

With continued trading in Morocco, 1260 Chic are able to support independent family businesses and co-operatives. Our continued business enables artisans to move from income insecurity and poverty, to economic development self-sufficiency and ownership.

Take a look at our baskets on offer and remember how you can help support our artisans.
