Strong small, medium & large round log baskets of traditional size & shape, 1/2 , 1 , and 1 1/2 bushel baskets. This style was once used in agriculture when they used baskets to measure in bushels. This design is surely very old and it's a pleasure to continue to make them. This style is woven with the chunky slewed weave texture with a natural darker brown & dark green coloured willows on the sides. (This style is also available woven in peeled buff and natural light brown willows in the shop. The dark brown is rustic and the version with peeled buff is smarter. Both are equally durable and suited for use as log baskets.)

I try to supply willow colours as close as possible to the natural colours illustrated in the photos above, give or take slight variation in natural willow bark. Whilst the colours shouldn't be dramatically different, please allow for some variations in natural willow colours. The willow colours may be arranged slightly differently in the basket from the illustrative photo depending on the suitability of the willow available at the time of ordering.
All sizes +/- 0.5" or +/- 1 cm
