Announcement   Handwoven Nantucket style baskets made by Patti Baker.
The enchantment and mystique of Nantucket Lightship Baskets dates back to the mid nineteenth century. Their beautiful craftsmanship originated from ship hands that were tasked to keep whalers safe from dangerous shoals and certain misfortune if their ships came too close to the southern shores of Nantucket Island. While living on these floating lighthouses, the crew kept themselves occupied during the long waiting period, by intricately weaving beautiful baskets.
It was a native of the Philippines, Jose Reyes, who came to Nantucket on vacation and decided to stay, that created the idea of the “Friendship Basket” and the use of current materials in the baskets today. With their beautiful design, made using wooden molds, rattan, ivory and other fine materials, Nantucket baskets are sought out by travelers from all over the world.
Each basket is an experience in fine workmanship and artistry.
