hand-woven basket - forest greens SOLD

This little rustic basket was hand-woven on a box from sisal and remnants of yarn and fleece in gorgeous forest greens, with some little unexpected bits of shiny silver and grey.

It was made and donated by Yozgang who is nearly 16 and is a textiles artist living in London.

This would be great for storing things - knick-knacks, keys, gardening bits and pieces, pens, memory sticks, cosmetics, cotton reels. Or you could line it with a napkin and serve yummy biscuits in it ..... It is both hard-wearing and very charming.

The basket measures 7.5 inches/19cm long, 2.5inches/ 6.5cm wide and 3 inches/7+ cm deep. The handles are approx. 7inches/18cm.
