Box Basket with Hinged Lid

A box basket with a hinged lid and handholes for you to use as you wish!  It's made using white Black Maul willow, with a border of contrasting green barked Black Maul on the lid. 

 

White willow is produced through the laborious proces of stripping the willow in spring when the sap is rising.  All women and children in willow growing regions would be called upon in May to pull each willlow rod through a metal sprung tool called a brake which would remove the bark.  These days a machine is used but it remains a slow, careful and costly process.
