This basket is really exceptional! It requeried a lot of work - it is made of oak splints heated in an oven to make them flexible. Only one tool is needed to make it- a knife.
The basket is very durable and it can serve ideally as a container for vegetables, fruits, wool, wire, or paper. During the year, its creators -masters Józef and his grandson Marcin- make just several baskets. It takes two days to weave one!

Basketry Master Józef Gawlik and his grandson Marcin Gawlik make an oak basket. During the year they make just several baskets. It takes two days to weave one! At first you have to posess an oak wood - very hard material and you have to bent it in an owen, in fire.
Józef's baskets are part of our offer thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions. This is a Polish product made by a Basketry Master. By purchasing it, you support local Polish craft and Basketry Master Józef directly.
