The basket is woven using an old Scandinavian basket weaving technique. Traditionally the baskets were woven from birch bark. I have used paper. After finish weaving the basket was coloured with goauche paint. Further areas were enhanced with metallic wax. Finally the basket was sealed. The sealant adds a lovely subtle sheen to the surface as well as making it making it very pleasant to the touch. Despite being made from paper the basket is surprisingly sturdy due to all the layers of folded paper.
The listing is for one basket, but I have a a total of 2 availble if you want a pair.
