I have used all Asian fabrics in making this basket, many of which I bought in Japan. This large basket is made with fabric covered clothesline and then zig-zag stitched together. I have made over 1200 baskets and guarantee that my work will be of the highest quality. The size of this basket is 5.5" tall, and 11" diameter at the top and bottom. A basket like this is a piece of art for your home and can be used as attractive storage in any room.
