We like baskets, not sure we are about to start making them, but if we did this book would be our guide. Found recently at a yard sale, Earth Basketry has some amazing baskets and instructions illustrated by the author.

All the baskets utilize fibers or materials found from wild plants.

Yes, that is a valuable book for weavers.

Nice find. Basket weaving is a great skill to have. I made my first (small) basket out of jute a few months ago with great success.

I found some basic instructions online. Jute is cheap and can easily be found at any hardware store.
