Wicker basket cube technique
A Tisket, a Tasket, a Children’s Wicker Basket.
We’ve offered large wicker baskets like this one for several years. The same manufacturer in Franconia produces a smaller version for children, which is also popular with adults. The children’s wicker basket, like the larger version, is made with a technique providing highly stable basket with smooth, clean surfaces inside and out. The basket is equipped with two wooden skids underneath: a traditional way to protect the floor known from rustic furniture. Starting from the bottom, the weaver constitutes a perfect rectangle and inserts along all four sides the willow cuttings. The manufacturer is a fourth generation master workshop and one of the last today that trains apprentices in this work intensive manufacturing technique, bringing a traditional craftsmanship back to life.
Incomparable Qualiy Made in Franconia. Honeycomb Technique.
This laundry basket has little in common with the cheaper competition offered by sales outfits at home and abroad. Good laundry baskets like these were being manufactured more than a 100 years ago with the so-called honeycomb technique, a double-layered wickerwork which features a high degree of stability and a smooth surface inside and out, plus wooden runners to protect the floors.
Weaving a basket starts with the base, in which the so-called spokes are inserted circularly. They are then bent upwards for a framework which is then woven in the honeycomb. Each basket is worked by hand without a form. Our baskets are manufactured by master craftsmen in the fourth generation who still weave and train new craftsmen with this cost intensive method.
