The elegant simplicity of the Strap Baskets recalls Shaker craftsmanship, but the leather strapping and copper-plated hardware gives it a defiant edge, a certain cowboy-like machismo. Each basket is hand-finished, with colorful cross-stitched rubber wires. This tough-yet-beautiful container is the perfect place to stash keys, mail, store jewelry, or display fruit or bread. In collaboration with Dwell we made a lower version of the Magazine Strap Basket. With Kaufmann Mercantile we made a dark leather Magazine Strap Basket. The Strap Baskets were manufactured in Los Angeles in collaboration with Mimot Studio.
Vegetable-tanned leather, copper-plated brass rivets, lead-free woven stainless steel wires with white nylon coating.
Use and Care:
The leather will take up a unique patina over time and with use. Condition with a beeswax Leather Conditioner if desired.
