why this product

This leather strap basket is strong and versatile: it can hold towels or magazines in the bathroom, firewood by the hearth or workshop tools in the garage. The design is based on traditional craftsmanship, but with a modern twist thanks to the dark leather and copper hardware. The materials are all sourced in the U.S.A. The custom copper plated rivets give each joint their strength. At every point where three or more pieces of leather join, there is a copper wire cross-stitch that holds everything together. The basket was designed in New York and made by one person in Long Beach, California.

use & care

The leather will take up a unique patina over time and with use. Condition with our Beeswax Leather Conditioner if desired.


production & design

This leather basket is a collaboration between two makers who admired each others’ aesthetic at their neighboring trade show booths. They decided to team up and make something together. The result: this functional yet handsome leather strap basket.
