Chic and Practical: French Shopping Baskets

French shopping baskets

Not all ‘French’ shopping bags actually come from France.

Called the ‘Couffin’ or French Market Bag, these popular baskets, the quintessential sac de marché for shopping in France, are actually hand made in Morocco using woven palm tree leaves and are most commonly trimmed in leather. Market bags arrived in France in the 19th century. They are light weight, strong, practical and versatile. Although ideal for carrying groceries, pet supplies or any other shopping fodder, they can also be used as storage around the house or in your car. Great for summer toting, these beautiful bags also make a great purse or market bag anytime!
