Natural Reed Baskets

These baskets serve as easy access for your fibers & tools while providing storage that's pleasing to the eye. Each of them is handwoven with a rustic style here at the homestead.


All measurements are approximate within inches, as each basket is woven free-form. Colors may vary from photos due to variances in computer monitors & lighting conditions. Brush off dust with a clean paint brush, or wipe with a slightly damp cloth to clean. Dab with baby oil if the reed seems dry, & wipe off excess.


Inventory fluctuates based on sales at shows. Special orders for different reed colors require extra time to allow for dyeing of the reeds, weaving, & staining. So check for what you "need" & email me to place your order!
