At the 2017 Josephine County Fair I entered one of two baskets which I received a blue ribbon 1st place! "A spa day for the hard working guy in your life"
I redesigning the packaging and made more handmade shaving cream, soaps, salt bombs, mineral veil with brush, deodorant, body wash, and candles with ceramic holders to customize any purchase of a gift sea kelp basket
This is just one of many ways to reuse any bull whip sea kelp gift basket after using every bath or spa item inside. Even better you can start using it right away and use up all the goodies that came inside

About

"To inspire others inspires me" finding Michelle is where I discovered myself that led me to my true hidden talents and passion in creating items

Welcome to my shop and thank you for stopping by. I'm Michelle sole owner and designer.
Every baskets is handmade and stitched from sea kelp that is found along the shoreline of the Oregon coast. Every basket comes out to have various colors between desert sand to cream beige and various shapes, textures,and the way it's decorate, if it even needs an extra touch. Whatever inspires me on the different and various ways I can design each one to have an unlikeness in each one. Some have handles that are made from the smaller ends of the kelp while others have none or a different type of handle. Some you can hang it from the handle but I put hooks on the ones that even with a handle would rather look and lay better. The texture of each one feels almost leather-like or a rough texture of some barks found on some trees. They are very durable and sturdy usually but some parts of the kelp is thinner than others so it make not be as strong. Also in every piece of sea kelp there are natural flaws that might be part of the basket but it's part of the uniqueness of natural sea kelp. Some customers have thought of putting it outside on a covered porch to use as a planter which I think is a wonderful idea but to much moister and water will make the kelp swell and then it will lose it's form. So I suggest that it be in the spring and summer times if you really want to use it for decoration on your porch If you were to get it a little wet it would not ruin it but, however, don't keep it in the rain. I found from many of my customers that purchased them different ways to use them besides what I thought so here are some great ideas:
plants
wall decorations
bath amenities
gift baskets
potpourri
mail holder
towel holders
dried flower
and whatever your imagination inspires you.

I love coming up with new and different ways to show off it's unusual style that can bring a wonderful home decoration made the center of conversations. I want you to enjoy them as much as I've had making each one and I try to make everyone with some kind of flare that stands out from any kind of basket made like this and hope you will enjoy it as well. This is eco friendly.

I'm able to make certain sizes depending on what the item is. A's far as my sea kelp baskets that varies in my supplies of kelp and what I can make with what I have or not have to complete a certain size.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I make my packaging first to make sure I have made the best box to fit any item with supplies used for fragile or items that need special care. By this I always line the items with shredded tissue paper, other items glass holders with foam, and every item is wrapped with tissue paper and if needed more stronger materials. I hand make special thank you cards and if notified I will be happy to make one if it is given as a gift to someone besides the buyer.
