A Case of Baskets
One of the Quimper Hitty’s friends has sent a wonderful parcel to us, containing some absolutely wonderful hand-made baskets. She knew they would have a good home, surrounded by people large and small, who appreciate and value them…
The outside has faded, but inside the Northwest Coast basket, you can still see the colours, and the design, which shows a whaling canoe and whale on the sides and a circular burst of colour on the lid.
Rose thinks this Gullah Basket from South Carolina will be perfect for taking to the farmer’s market this summer.
…though this beautiful one with its spray of coloured leaves and grass tuft might be awkward in a crowd…
Rose heard purring sounds coming from under the lid of this gorgeous Injera mini basket from Ethiopia …
…every cat knows what the real purpose of a basket is!
Our friend sent us so much information about these lovely baskets, we thought it best to just let you read it for yourselves!
