Toys storage or laundry day never looked so good. Dispense of your plastic dollar store basket and choose a hand woven, heirloom quality, one that will not only look good, but will last for years and years. A unique twill weave pattern was used in this large storage basket, named "Carabelle". A 10' x 15" oval provides a sturdy wood base. Splint reed is used for weaving (also generalized as wicker) Pottery handles are artisan custom made for me. The neutral reed with smoke accents used in the weaving will coordinate with most any decor. This is a classic basket that will give you years and years of use. Basket has been stained with a protective oak finish.

Note ... "CARABELLE" is a READY TO SHIP basket. This listing is for the basket ONLY. Any other items used in the above photos are for props only and are not included.

Dimensions are approximate.
Dimensions at Rim: 13" x 16"
Height: 11 1/2"

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.
