This egg gathering basket is perfect for fresh eggs,
garden harvest, Easter treats, fruits, lunches, or dried
flower arrangements. This basket style originated in England,
Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Early immigrants shared their
basketry techniques with the Cherokee Indians, who developed
unique hand-dyed splint baskets with materials available
in New England. Artisans in the Ozarks and Appalachian
Mountains continue to make sturdy egg baskets with oak,
ash, hickory, and maple splints and handles.
The kit contains two twisted rattan hoops for the rim and
handle, flat reed and a simple instruction booklet. Great kit
for weavers that are just starting out.
