Another amazing basket! This one took longer to get here than the last, but it is so sturdy, it traveled across the world without a box and arrived in perfect condition! Unique, beautiful, and so fabulous! Thank you!

So fabulous! This came very quickly, considering how far it traveled, and is a marvel! It was shipped wrapped in bubble and brown paper - no box. Amazingly sturdy, and just beautifully fashioned, great detail. Quite large. I am just in awe of this lovely natural basket! Thank you so much! well done!

Great picture from happy customer, my basket found a new home.
Enjoying harvesting palm branches from the fileds of the Jordan valley next to the Sea Of Galilee. Carefully picking the material that will be woven into various types of baskets. My craft work is hand made from start to finish.

About

TENE- Basket Weaving

“TENE”(pronounced t'en'e) means “basket” in Hebrew.
I started TENE six years ago after studying wicker basketry four years with a master-artisan in a kibbutz near Jerusalem. Basketry is one of the most ancient crafts recorded, dating 10,000 to 12,000 years ago. I love working with my hands, recycling nature’s “waste” in beautiful heirlooms and other useful objects. Today I weave exclusively from the date palm tree which I personally forage near the Sea of Galilee. Using the strong and flexible branches, fronds, raceme and even the fruits in my basketry provides a unique, natural product which is strong and long lasting.
Sometimes I use olive branches or other local vegetation to add details to my baskets.
I live west of the Sea of Galilee with my husband and three children, and my studio overlooks the Mediterranean Sea, providing a peaceful atmosphere and incredible views. My studio is pet free and smoke free.
