Southwestern Carved Tree Root Basket 12" (rbsk4)
This one-of-a-kind Root basket is created by artisans who use tree roots to create uniquely shaped baskets that are also natural works of art. Each root basket is hand carved which gives it a unique shape, size, and color and makes for a fantastic home, cabin, or lodge style decoration. Root baskets are created from the tree stump that is left behind after a tree has been cut down, which is a great use of something that is often left untouched.
These amazing baskets created from tree stumps have natural handles formed by two roots growing together. So, the tree stump is turned upside down and carved out, excess roots are removed. Only a very few have this natural handle, the rest are made into equally beautiful bowls and platters, they are very unique for natural decor and make great gifts.
This basket has a smooth glossy finish that makes it easy to clean and gives it a beautiful shine that is perfect for home decor. Root Baskets make wonderful natural rustic style center pieces, fruit baskets, or decorations in any southwestern style home, bunkhouse, or cabin. This hand carved root basket also makes a great gift or home addition for those who enjoy the beauty of natural rustic southwestern style decor.
