ROPE COIL

The baskets made with the willow rope coiling technique are as much practical as they are beautiful. The twisting of the willow in the weave gives movement and texture to these creations. The choice of a symmetrical or asymmetrical shape, the association of different kinds of willow, make them original objects which are always appreciated.
