This large storage basket will handle a big load! It has a 10' x 15" solid oak wood base that has been stained and polyurethane sealed for a "wipe clean" finish. Flat splint reed is used for weaving (also sometimes commonly referred to in general as wicker or rattan). A neutral palette of dark brown and black dyed reeds are used as accent colors against the natural reed. The black leather strap handles are not only attractive on this design but are very functional in transporting a load! This is a classic basket that will give you years and years of use.

All of my baskets are handwoven in free form weaving. No molds or forms are used. As with any truly handmade item, some variations are to be expected as no two baskets will be exactly identical. The dimensions of the finished basket will be close to those shown. Splint reed is a natural product and some blemishes may be found. I weave with only the highest quality materials I can obtain and do my best to avoid any reed imperfections.
