This large basket was made with a handwoven piece of fabric for the outer and some lighter and heavier secondhand fabrics for the lining and base. The outer woven fabric was made from a mix of secondhand macramee and wool yarns, which were both sourced through online secondhand marketplaces.
The textured outer piece was woven on a small table loom. The macrame rope and wool yarn are alternated during the weaving process to form a fine striped pattern. After the warp was taken off the loom, the woven fabric was combined with some lighter linen for the lining and some sturdy canvas for the base of the basket. The outer fabric was folded over around the rim to the inside, so that the basket looks nice when it is not completely full or so that the rim can be folded and only the woven fabric stays visible.
This large basket works perfectly as a yarn storage or to keep other small items, like kid's toys or house slippers. With the rim folded over, it can also work well as a decorative plant pot for a larger house plant.
