From the kitchen garden to the alpine lakes, from rivers to oceans, this traditional foragers basket will become a highly valued companion on all your wild foraging adventures.
Weave with a community of nature lovers for good times, warmth and connection.
Woven from flat and half-round reed the shape is complimented with a rounded “belly”, allowing it to securely hold your harvest. The back-side remains flat to rest comfortably against your side. A sturdy lashed rim and riveted strap complete this beauty for hands-free foraging.
