Chinese Twist Woven Market Basket

$368

About

It's easy to imagine someone, long ago, walking to market on a beautiful summer day with this beautiful basket slung over their arm. Basket making is an ancient and humble craft, but in the hands of a truly skilled weaver willow branches, like these, can be transformed into a truly beautiful work of art. In China, willow symbolizes renewal, spring, and immortality. The twist weave technique employed here adds dynamic motion to this fundamental form.
