Blue Twill Basket with Wrapped Reed Handle
All four sides have a slightly different weave all because the handle acts as two reeds in the weave pattern. Note that on one end of the basket, the blue twill goes up to the left and on the other end it goes up to the right. Similarly, the mostly natural sides of the basket differ in that one has "mountain" twills and the other has V twills. Base measures 6 1/4" x 6 3/4" The rim measures 9 1/2" x 10", and the basket is 5 1/2" deep. Handle tops at 12 1/2" from table. This handle does not have the oak handle filler that I use on most of my baskets, so it is slightly flexible.
