Experimental Jute & Rope Pannier # 1- This is a one off design made as part of the Ruby Cubes Friday Artisan series.

A completely experimental piece. Made as a trio of adventures of basket making with polished jute & unbleached cotton rope. The piece comprises a jute basket and a rope cone that have become a “pannier” with a joining section and woven jute handle. The colours used are subtle pink, dark grey & denim blue. The jute & rope together give a wonderful overall fusion feel of rustic vs contemporary.

Please note that because jute is not as sturdy as rope, the cone has to be “placed” at the optimal distance from the jute basket to give the strongest hold. A wonderful piece to hold dried flowers.

Dimensions:

each basket is 25cm high x 16cm wide

Handmade to last with unbleached cotton rope. Each one is handmade using a freeform sewing technique.

Best care is to spot wash with warm water and dry in the sun or near a radiator. Cotton soaks up stains but also releases them very easily. Stubborn stains can be removed with a little baking soda paste and warm water. Hot water will shrink the cotton.
