Baskets

Woven by Linda Gallardo:

After being introduced and mentored by my "Basketry Shifu" (as I call her), Phyllis Scarbrough on the skills of basket weaving, I began filling my 'free time' crafting all sorts of practical baskets that I needed on the farm. From laundry baskets to nut buckets, and egg baskets to pack baskets. I have since crafted dozens of styles and types with various different natural materials. After filling my home (literally) with all sorts of baskets and making good use of them throughout the farm, I realized that I better sell some of them before I can't walk around my house.

All baskets sold here are handmade, unique and made with natural materials.

Sizes are approximate, measurements are within the nearest 1/4" (inch).

Pack/backback baskets are continuously woven (for strength) with flat oval reed. My pack baskets are woven in four common sizes, XSmall, Small, Medium, Large & XLarge. A variety of different pack straps (sold separately) can be ordered to finish your unique pack basket.
