Whatever sends you off to the market, our wonderful Market Basket will tote it all home for you. Designed with a sturdy handle and a thick base, you will get years of use out of them. Each basket holds an amazing amount of stuff, and yet keeps it all where you put it. Durably and consciously constructed by hand, designs will vary. Fantastic for an entryway catchall as well. A great gift that gives back to the artisans who created it. Ghana.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful basket and gorgeous This basket is so versatile! It holds a good amount and is beautiful. I am presently using it in my living room with toys for my infant grand daughter. But have been know to empty those out to take it to the local farmer's market to get products. Great basket!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful and functional After reading the reviews I decided to order two of these baskets and I am very pleased with my purchase. They are large, sturdy, and really beautiful. I put one out on my screened-in porch that I put small pieces of kindling and matches for use in our outdoor fireplace. I got lucky that the colors were natural, teal, and dark blue which are the colors of my furniture on the porch. The second basket I am putting in the guest bedroom with a blanket and towels for when we have guests come stay with us. I almost wish I ordered another one as the uses for them is endless. If you're looking for a functional basket that looks great, you won't be disappointed. September 12, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great all round basket! I love this basket so much I had to buy another one! Now I have one in my bedroom, that I use to hold things and for decoration. The other I use to carry just about anything I can fit in it...kids toys, farmer market items, picnic lunch, ect. I have not had any issues with either basket. The working basket even takes beatings from my 5 year old son, when he wants to help carry things. August 27, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Huge basket This basket is beautiful, strong and well made. I especially like the red leather on the handle. I intend on using it in the guest room to hold either blankets or magazines. Very functional. Lovely to look at! July 27, 2012

Answer: 
Set it out in the rain - when soaked through bring it inside and shape it with your hands. If needed you can stuff it with dry towels to help it maintain shape as it dries. I have many baskets, jute, willow and slat wood and when they get a bit squished this brings them back.

Answer: 
If it is badly mis-shaped you can spray it with a little water and then use a hair dryer to slightly heat the basket with will allow it become more pliable.
