I love my paper basket. It is really pretty and really cool. And the artist was lovely to do business with. Highly recommended.

Add a Splash of Color with Hand-Woven Paper Baskets and Accessories

Recycling, upcycling, and repurposing are just a few terms that describe this simple idea – take something that is no longer needed or wanted and give it new life as something that is functional, useful, creative, and fun!

Here at Blue Tang Designs, you’ll find a special collection of handmade baskets, bowls, and accessories, created from paper and other materials that might otherwise be discarded. The paper comes from a variety of sources – leftover wallpaper, gift wrap, brown paper bags, catalogs, newspapers, scrapbooking paper, outdated calendars, and, well, you get the idea. Most of the paper I use comes from friends, neighbors, and my own never-ending supply. And our community-wide garage sale this past October was like hitting the jackpot – maps, Christmas cards, coloring books… I get so inspired by the colors, patterns and textures, and all the possibilities!

Some of the other items incorporated are: guitar strings to reinforce basket handles; beads made from small pieces of paper scraps; embellishments from discarded jewelry, and whenever possible, items provided by nature.

I hope you enjoy my shop and the items offered. This ever changing collection of handmade baskets and accessories will certainly add a personal style and unique flair to any space.

Thanks for visiting!
