Berry Patch Basket
This is the simplest, purest country basket that would have come out of the Revolutionary War period. Made using traditional construction, the Berry Patch basket has no glue or nails. It has a pure country form. You will feel like you are back in the 1600s when you use this basket to gather your berries.
Dimensions: 6” dia x 6 1/5” tall. 1 qt measure. Due to the handwoven nature of this item all sizes are approximate.
6" Classic Nantucket
The 6” Classic Nantucket is perfect for the beginning weaver. The size is not too big as to be overwhelming and not to small as to be more difficult to work with.
Nate's Nantucket kits exemplify the finest quality parts and designs made on the Island today. He uses only the highest quality ash. American whits ash is one of the two main woods used by the original, now historic, basket makers.
