This is the perfect basket for a desk, by the entrance door, by the bed, anywhere you have things you would like to store in a stylish manner. 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 in a light transparent blue colour. The outside of the basket was further decorated with opaque metallic paint letting the light blue colour show here and there. 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 touch. Despite being made from paper the basket is surprisingly sturdy.
