We are a husband and wife team who have spent the last few years designing and making pine needle baskets. Our baskets are individually handmade, no two are alike. The baskets are made of pine needles from native Northern California trees, mostly Jeffery Pine and/or Ponderosa Pines. We use the ancient method of coiled basketry and incorporate centers of various materials (wood, resin, metal).  The needles are given a bubble bath and sterilized with boiling water.  When the basket is finished, we give them a coat of Shellac which seal the needles and help to retain their shape.We hope you enjoy our baskets which we make with love and passion.

PS - they make great gifts!!
