UGLI is a citrus fruit created by hybridizing a grapefruit , an orange and a tangerine. It was discovered growing wild in Jamaica where it is mainly grown today.
It has an unsightly appearance with rough, wrinkled, greenish-yellow rind, wrapped loosely around the orange pulpy citrus inside.
Ugly is in the eye of the beholder however, and I think it makes a grand basket!


This basket comes with a snug fitting, hand painted wooden lid.
The wooden top is completely removable. Its knob is also wood.
I place an extra coil on the inside to prevent the lid from dropping down in.


The design features the color and texture of the ugli fruit rind.
The artwork has been protected with a coat of clear coat.
The basket's colors include shades of citrus green and yellow. There is also just a bit of brown.



This basket measures almost 10 inches in diameter at the top.. It sits 7 inches tall. It has a tapered bowl shape.



This covered basket is a great way to create creative storage. Frankly, it is pretty enough to stand alone...with no particular purpose at all...and serves nicely as a decoration, gift or centerpiece. It would be grand combined with some of my other "fruit" baskets.

My baskets are made by the coiling method of basketry. Strips of fabric (both new and recycled) are wrapped around an inner cording as the shape is formed. The inner cording makes these baskets sturdier than other fabric,felted or crocheted items.
Each one is entirely handmade with no machine stitching.
Each one is unique.
