A beautiful basket highlighting Native American twill patterns, it will find a place in your home, both functionally and decoratively, as a centerpiece in itself. The technique of constructing diamonds creates a solid bottom and sturdy sides. The graceful shape of Shaker cathead baskets is incorporated into the base and adds interest to this basket, completed with a pair of hand-carved oak bushel basket handles. Leave with an understanding of creating and designing with diamond-patterned twills, and a striking hand-woven piece. Basket dimensions approximately 18" long, 8" wide, and 6" high at the rim.
