Hawaiian BasketPosted by in Collecting | Travel Shopping
This week’s basket is from Waikoloa, on the Big Island of Hawaii. I came across this in a tiny group of shops we happened upon in an unexpected area. I also bought a Hawaiian quilt in the same shop. I found the shopping on the Big Island to be fantastic. There were so many handmade, beautiful items for sale that all reflected the natural beauty of the island.
The basket is an open top basket with a handle. It is made from royal palm. I particularly like the stitching down the sides. There is a piece of fabric that is used as a flap and it has a shell sewn on it. The tag that came with it called it a purse, but I think of it as a basket.

Beautiful basket. I loved window shopping on the Big Island. We only brought back things we could eat (our house is so cluttered as it is.)
