A Parting Piece of Knowledge…

They’re the perfect marriage of form and function, so it makes sense that woven baskets have been around for thousands of years. Historians have a hard time pinpointing exactly when baskets developed, since the natural materials used to make them tend to deteriorate over time. But nearly all ancient peoples crafted and used their own versions of woven baskets—with many attaching special religious meaning to the designs.

We consider them to be an absolute essential in the home, corralling everything from kitchenware to toys with both ease and elevated style.
