It's easy to imagine the original owner of this basket walking to market on a summer day with the arched handle slung over their arm. Used for carrying food or harvesting vegetables from the garden, this dark, woven basket is a beautiful example of Chinese basket-making. Basket making is an ancient and humble craft, but in the hands of a truly skilled weaver, willow branches, symbols of renewal and springtime, can be transformed into a truly beautiful work of art. Formed of darkened willow entwined with a twist weave, this shallow basket is imbued with a sense of balance and dynamic motion, and looks lovely in the home as a basket for ripe fruits or fresh bread.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
