Szyszak is a well-designed basket which you can use to carry bottles. You will fall in love with its style, combining traditional handicraft with modern design. It is made of natural white willow. It can easily hold six half-litre bottles, which are protected very well with felt inserts. The designer of the basket recommends it to beer lovers but it will be also perfect for carrying water or lemonade. This basket is a cool carrier of tradition!
The tight willow weaves guarantee safe and comfortable transportation. The basket is also easy to keep clean in case of leakage. Thanks to the handle, you can move a heavily loaded basket without any trouble and the additional strap makes it easier at longer distances.
* Choose your favourite colour for the strap!
* Companies can choose to place their logotype on the basket.
We can offer this basket to you thanks to our long-standing friendships formed during Serfenta’s basketry expeditions and workshops. This is a Polish product, made by a basketry master.

Rafał Górczyński – a young Basketry Master who uses top-quality willow to weave baskets and furniture. He learned the skill of willow basket making in the Lower Silesia School Complex in Jawor. Now, he passes on his passion for handicraft to others.
To make szyszak baskets, he uses wooden moulds. White willow is obtained through the natural process of submerging fresh material in water for a few weeks, which makes it less accessible and more unique. No chemical agents are used in the process of whitening!
