Weav­ing in tra­di­tion

Landscape (UK) - - Reader's Letters - For­ager’s bas­ket, 12in wide by 10in high £35, www.john­cow­an­bas­kets.co.uk

This for­ager’s bas­ket can be used for col­lect­ing eggs, for­ag­ing in the woods and hills, or as a shapely twist on the tra­di­tional shop­ping bas­ket. They are hand­made by John Cowan in a big shed in the gar­den at his La­nark­shire home. He re­searches and cre­ates bas­kets to tra­di­tional de­signs, of­ten res­ur­rect­ing styles now lost, but once very fa­mil­iar to bas­ket mak­ers of the past.
