In Tunisia and around the Mediterranean Sea, 3 basic plant fibers grow: bulrush, halfah grass and palm trees. From these three fibers, baskets are made.
Nabeul is Tunisia’s first tourist center for weaving baskets and making soles and carpets from bulrush. Area of Gabes is the second center for weaving basket from bulrush. My craftsman has a great job and gold hands
The large “Jana” basket is hand knitted from 2 different materials: bulrush – “smaar” in Arabic and halfah grass.
