Welcome to the daily series “In Search Of”, where we look high and low on Krrb for one-of-a-kind items that we must have now! Today, it’s all about “Basketweave” and we’ve got loads of it.

We’re in awe of the art of basket weaving. Also known as basketry, weaving fibrous materials into a basket is a dying craft. Originally made by indigenous peoples for religious ceremonies or for trading, the resulting attention to detail is hard to come by nowadays. Check out this roundup of listings with basket weaving texture.
