Shaping Baskets:  Wet baskets with lukewarm water, shape, turn upside down to dry. They will look perfect every time.
The specialized weaving process makes these baskets strong and flexible. Occasionally wetting the baskets will re-hydrate the fibers making  baskets stronger and will lengthen their life.

Miro Wall Hanging

Miro Wall Hanging & Pillow Covers
Catalan artist Joan Miro had a surreal, highly unrestrained vision of art which you will discover in our contemporary Wall Hangings and Miro Inspired Pillows. Eschewing the conventional methods of the time, he blazed his own path of brilliant color and wild shapes across the canvas. This Wall Hanging captures that same vibrant spirit in spirals of hand-stitched Kashmir wool, fair trade from India.
