A Handmade item
Made in Australia
by HandwovenSpiritbyChantal
* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

This intricate basket is handwoven using hundreds of cured long leaf Himalayan Chir Pine needles (Pinus roxburghii) which I collected from fallen branches in the Botanical Gardens after a big storm. Although a little finer to work with than other pine needles I usually use, I love the softer golden colour they dry to. This basket is stitched together with different shades of tan, yellow ochre and brown sinew, with the addition of brown Picasso seed beads. Woven in the centre of this basket is a 35ct natural cabochon rhyolite rainforest jasper stone. Coils are wrapped in brown and soft pastel green colours inspired by the wooded rainforests on the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, Australia. A tribute basket to a part of Australia I consider my second home.

Although delicate, it has been sealed with beeswax and clear lacquer for durability, and comes with a hemp hook so it can also hang on the wall.

Dimensions 7 cm tall x 24 cm long x 22 cm wide (2.8 inches tall x 9.4 inches long x 8.7 inches wide).
Dimensions of the stone is 3 cm tall x 2 cm wide diameter (1.2 inches tall x 0.8 inches wide).

~ TIMEFRAME ~
4-6 weeks in the making and estimating a minimum of 40-60 hours of work to complete, just to give you an idea of how much was involved in weaving this basket.

* POSTAGE NOTE *
Some countries have restrictions on what can be sent in the post in terms of plant based products. I can check the Australia Post International Guide; however, there is still a risk they may not make it through. As a secure measure, until I have tested sending some baskets in the post to friends around the world, the only countries I know where they have made it through are: AUSTRALIA and CANADA (currently investigating the USA and Europe)

* * EXPRESS SHIPPING FOR LARGE BASKETS * *
For larger baskets, Express shipping will be calculated accordingly to your postcode. Please contact me for a quote.

Happy shopping and thank you for keeping art and the handmade alive!

With my best regards,
