I am a heavy basket person. We use them for storing, transporting, markets, gatherings, traveling, work meetings and so much more. I was introduced to their many functions and perfect home design element by my great friend, mentor and mother of my guy, Dominique. She is the truest classy, Bohemian, French act. Majority of the baskets we own have been gifted to us by her from The Ojai Farmers' market. And the few others that supplement our life are from one of my favorite online havens, Connected Fair Trade. This is a wonderful company that celebrates artisans around the world ensuring that they receive fair wages and good working conditions.
Here are a few of my favorites to get you excited for this wonderful holiday. Throw a blanket in your basket, some treats + wonderful white wine, and set up a picnic anywhere you're headed to watch the fire works. Happy 4th!
