Rattan baskets with Moosbally

‘For me, it is the only way I can be sure of the quality of our products. A machine will never be able to feel its way around the wood the way I can.’

About Mawlabaccus & Said Moosbally

Working from their family workshop in the small village of Brisee Verdiere, father and son Mawlabaccus and Said Moosbally have been creating handmade rattan products for more than 40 years. Artisans in their own right, they are still using tried and tested methods in an increasingly automated world, making the rattan ware you will see throughout SALT of Palmar. ‘People are always surprised we still make everything by hand,’ Mawlabaccus explains when asked why they still use traditional methods.

Other Skill Swap

SALT guests will be immersed into the heart of Mauritian life, with the opportunity to connect directly with locals via our Skill Swap. This means they exchange their time, talent & skills with the local people. Guests of SALT can also join our local suppliers and see their work or passion. From pottery with Janine at her Pamplemousses studio or early morning fishing with Kishor, or basket weaving with Mrs Bulleeram in Brisée Verdière – SALT has friends doing incredible things all over the island and guests are invited to share their passion.
