Hand woven storage baskets make very practical and stylish objects for home use. This cylinder basket with lid is perfect for storing anything around the house. Use this basket to store things in the kitchen, children's toys, or even as a waste basket. You can also place this item in your bathroom and store dirty laundry in it. The basket features natural color accented with pink thread. It closes shut with the lid so that contents will be secure inside. The diameter of the basket is 13 cm, the height is 17 cm. The baskets are woven from pine needles collected in the surrounding forest, which give the baskets a refreshing smell. Unlike traditional basket weaving, these baskets are constructed by “sewing” groups of pine needles together. To create different colors and patterns, the family uses pine needles that are at different stages of dryness and thus have different colors. The family also uses different color thread to sew the baskets and create colorful designs. The time spent to make each basket ranges from a few hours to make the smaller baskets to about 30 hours to make the large fruit baskets.
