Fabric Wrapped Basket - Custom Colors

from 12.55

We get the signature look of these patterned baskets by incorporating small strips of fabric with 100% cotton rope, then sewing the fabric-wrapped rope together one coil at a time.  Each basket is already unique because it's made from start to finish by a real person, and the handcrafted process accentuates colors and patterns so that no two baskets will ever turn out exactly the same.   

Choose from the following basket sizes:

Small Basket (3" base, 1.5" tall) - for rings, change, pins, etc

Shallow Basket (4.5" base, 1.5" tall) - for watch, jewelry, keys, threads, etc

Oval Basket (4x9" oval, 3" tall) - for keys, wallet, phone, lotions, small potted plants, etc

Bread Basket (Round) (9" base, 3" tall) - for keys, phone, wallet, change, mail, bread/crackers, etc

Bread Basket (Oval) (6x11" base, 3" tall) - keys, phone, wallet, remote controls, sunglasses, etc

Large Round Storage Basket (9" base, 6" tall) - storage of craft items, magazines, mail, cords & electronic accessories, children's toys, etc

And now - leave us some color notes!  You can look through our fabrics listed online and tell us which one(s) you like.  You can tell us about the peachy pinkness of Grandma's kitchen, or the gray undertones of the rug in your living room.  You can distinguish (like we do) between tomato reds, apple reds, and brick reds.  Or you can just say "Hey, I like blues!"  

The more specific you can be, the better we will be able to meet your request.  

A quick note: each and every basket is unique because a REAL person in a beautiful, cozy studio/shop in downtown Blowing Rock, North Carolina makes it.  Therefore, the basket you receive may be different from the images you see.  If you need clarification before placing your order, please email themountainthreadcompany at gmail dot com.
