This listing is for the counter baskets in dark brown, designed to hang or sit on a counter. These are distinguished from the hanging produce baskets by a flat bottom. This version is garnished with leaves all the way around the top. Leaves are designed to make use of the raw ends of the fibre rush, instead of weaving a border. It takes time to open and shape them, but the result looks great.

Woven in a twine weave, using the tough material called fibre rush, it is about half the volume of the medium round bottomed hanging basket. The opening is much wider and the sides straight up and down without the kidney shape of the larger basket. The handle is attached to the back to hang at just the right angle.

The bottoms of these baskets are actually flat, or close enough that they will sit on a counter when full of onions. They do better with air circulating all around, but since these are smaller baskets, it is less likely that your onions will go bad if you choose not to hang yours.

There is approximately the same volume in all of the baskets, but there is some variety in the actual dimensions. The Medium holds 6-8 onions and the Small holds 3 or 4 very nicely. The leafy baskets in the pictures are all Mediums for now, but the last shot shows a small and a medium plain together to give you an idea of the difference in size and the last shot is a dozen Mediums awaiting shipment to wholesale customer.

Leafy baskets are usually done to order. It will look just like a Medium......Or, a Small, with a thick crown of leaves. Note that the handle will be mounted as shown in the first and third photos.

Your basket will arrive with a flyer that provides information about the history and care of fibre rush baskets. It's important to read it over before using your basket.

Ships from Oregon - Baskets usually ship Priority, although occasionally, we have to fall back on First Class or Standard Ground rates. Makes it kind of hard to give you a shipping quote on our Etsy listings, since they only give us room for one quote. I quote the least expensive rate, but often Priority isn't a lot more (sometimes it is...)Feel free to write and ask for a direct quote and decide if you want yours shipped priority or parcel post. Otherwise, I ship the least expensive method (unless the difference is negligible) and refund any overage in the shipping fee.
