In centuries past baskets have been a necessity of life. Although the use of the basket in daily life has changed - the basic art of making them has stayed the same. It is my pleasure to introduce you to my own handwoven collection
All the baskets you will see here are handwoven by myself,using rattan reed. I also make my own stain , using pecan shells, to give them an 'antiqued' look. They are woven the 'old- fashioned' way, using no nails, glue, or staples (with the exception of some of the boughten handles). This makes a very strong, yet flexible basket. They are made to use! and I encourage you to do so! A damper environment is better for the baskets than too dry, so an occasional wash at the garden hose is a good thing for them. The baskets can easily be customized to a size or color you prefer. I do a lot of special order as well, so please let me know if I can help you out in this way. I do offer a selection of color: black, dark brown, navy blue, cobalt blue, kelly green, dark green, scarlet red, and wine, for you to choose for the colored weaving in the basket. Please enjoy browsing and don't forget to sign the guestbook as you leave!
