Overseas Connection Market Basket

Overseas Connection Market

All these baskets are hand-woven by villagers in Africa using natural, locally available materials. By purchasing these baskets, you are helping to support many families of weavers. Large (15"-17" diameter), strong, durable, colorful and every one is unique, being entirely hand-made. While size will be in the 15-17" range, colors and patterns will vary as each basket is individually created. The picture shown is a reference for the basic style of the basket. Each is a unique design and will depend on the village and materials available. When this basket is delivered, it will be folded in a box. Use the following directions for reshaping it. Start by running warm water over the entire basket - you can even get the handle and tag wet. Allow the water to soak in and then shake off any excess water. Allowing the water to completely soak in makes the basket very pliable. Put the basket down on a flat surface, roll it around and set into the desired shape. Allow to air dry.
