HAND-CARVED BURL WOOD BASKET

from 59.99

A fantastic conversation piece for displaying your eclectic collection or seasonal items, displaying fruit or serving food, this hand-carved basket is fashioned from a unique species of fir. The raw materials come from stumps and burls in the roots of trees left by logging operations. What was once destroyed as “waste by-products” is now removed by hardy teams along the mountain slopes and transported to carving villages. After careful cleaning and grading, each gnarled stump is transformed by a skilled carver into the gorgeous basket you see here. No two are alike! Each piece is fashioned from a single piece of wood.

These baskets are sourced from global craftsmen and then hand-finished locally with a natural oil finish and engraved with “Alaska”. Thank you for your purchase which promotes free-trade as well as our local artisans and supports responsible use of reclaimed wood enabling sustainability and re-forestation. Custom engraving is available upon request.

* Each piece is hand-carved by skilled artisans so no two are exactly alike. Due to the natural variety and shape of the burls these products are handmade from, the dimensions provided are approximate and some variation can be expected. Knotholes and minor cracks add a unique charm.
