Baskets – One of history’s most useful inventions

Baskets can be used for a number of reasons including storage and transporting goods. Generally hand-woven from bamboo, sea grass, or some type of wood material, baskets are a common item found throughout the world. Some baskets come with handles for easier transportation. Picnic baskets, for example, usually have handles and a fabric-covered bottom to carry food. Baskets without handles are often used as décor in homes. They are a great option for storing small items and keeping a clutter-free home.Basket weaving is one of the oldest crafts in human civilization. The art of weaving has been passed down through generations, with improvements made upon the methods over time. Baskets include three parts – the base, side walls, and the rim. The base can come in different shapes but the most common are oval and rectangle. Different patterns can be made by changing the size, color, and placement of the weaves.One holiday where baskets are very popular is Easter. Pastel colored baskets are perfect for this occasion since they can be used for Easter egg hunts or displaying Spring-time items. Baskets are also used for other special occasions. A heart-themed basket, for example, can be used to assemble a gift basket on Valentine’s Day. Christmas baskets, woven with a green and red pattern are ideal for decorative purposes on the special holiday or for making Christmas gift baskets. The best part about baskets is that they are relatively inexpensive to purchase and can be used for a wide range of purposes.
