why this product

This iconic basket is a classic piece of Americana. True to its roots, it's hewn from New England ash trees by a 163-year-old basket company.

use & care

In the event of a spill, gently wash with soap and water and then wipe dry. Linseed (flaxseed) oil will restore luster to the wood if it looks brittle.

production & design

These baskets start out as raw ash from the New England ash tree, which grows in hydric soil and low-altitude forests. Ash logs are fed through a planer to reduce the thickness and give each piece of wood a smooth surface suitable for weaving. The wood is softened in water to prepare it for the weaving process. After the baskets have been shaped and cut, they are sanded and trimmed by hand.
