Vermont Berry Basket
Basketry is an ancient craft. As old as human history. And while basket making thrives in many places around the world, today, baskets made in the United States are few and far between. We feel honored and lucky to showcase and share our collection of Vermont made baskets. From bread to berry. From harvest to haul. These are baskets to use. To love. To proudly display. And then to use again.
Details: Approximately 7"W x 6"D x 7"H. 27" Drop leather strap. Rattan and leather. Made in Vermont. Due to the handmade nature each will vary.
About: Kristine Myrick Andrews has been making finely-crafted baskets in her home since the early 1980’s. Kris designs her baskets to be functional and rugged as well as aesthetically pleasing. After experimenting with a wide variety of basket materials, Kris found that rattan provides the strength, flexibility, weight and aesthetic appeal that her styles require. Some of the handles and bases are fashioned from oak or pine. A lover of variety, Kris makes many different styles in various sizes including miniatures. Most of her designs are based on early Shaker, Appalachian and New England Styles. Her award-winning baskets have been featured in a variety of national and local publications, and are sold at select shows and retail craft markets throughout the Northeast.
