This straw bread rising basket is traditionally used for baking homemade bread. It will enchant you with its natural beauty and golden hue. It will be perfect for baking your own bread! The basket is a handy object for every household – you can use it to proof your bread and then to serve the freshly baked, great-smelling, round loaf. A beautiful, eco-friendly touch to your kitchen. It is definitely one of a kind, woven locally by Polish craftspeople. 

 

Baking tip: 

Place a cotton cloth between the bread dough and the basket, just like presented in the photo, or use potato starch.

IMPORTANT! Dry the basket thoroughly if it has contact with water.
