The Square Market Basket was designed as an antique reproduction from days gone-by. As long as there have been goods to transport, market baskets have been woven to carry things. Our Square Market Basket reminds us of those olden days.

The art of basketweaving is nearly as old as the creation of time. Centuries before the invention of cardboard or plastic, people needed containers for the harvesting, transporting, and storage of goods, possessions, and treasures. They wove baskets from whatever materials were available – grasses, vines, pine needles, barks, and strips of wood. As years have rolled on, basketry has withstood the test of time. Today there are many other forms of “containers”, but nostalgia reminds us that a well woven, handmade basket is still something to be appreciated and enjoyed.
