Footed Basket

The footed rectangle basket follows a traditional Shaker style.  The sides are woven tightly while the base has open spaces to allow for air movement.  The design makes the basket perfect for drying wool, storing onions or potatoes or holding most any item you wish.

The rim allows for hand holes to easily lift and carry the basket.  I like to add color to the basket in a variety of patterns. Any combination of colored reed and widths of reeds can be woven in the side to make each basket a distinctive, unique design.
