These baskets are incredibly built by one single,continuous piece of rope on a jig Tanya made by hand. They are hefty baskets that are best used as decor in the home. We love the two together in a corner with some beautiful dried flowers, to hold your yarn and materials or just used to store those little knick-knacks. This is Hand-Knit waxed cotton rope basket dip-dyed in gun metal. You love it, so do we.
