Beautiful Basket!
  |  By
This basket is not only beautiful. It is a good large size and is priced well. The packaging was good and the basket itself was folded in a bit. Do not be daunted by the initial appearance of the basket as it can easily be reshaped by hand.I found that stuffing the basket with towels and using the turbo steam setting on my iron to soften the weaving, then using the heel of my hand to coax it back to it's original shape was rather satisfying! A few little tweaks here and there and the basket looked great! One could always use a clothes steamer to shoot the steam through the basket for reshaping too. I am very happy that I purchased this basket and it looks beautiful in my home. I truly appreciate the skills of the ladies who handmade this basket!
