Bread rising basket

This proofing basket will be perfect for baking your own homemade bread! It will enchant you with its natural beauty, golden hue, and amazing functionality. It can be used not only to rise bread but also to serve it. The basket will give a beautiful, practical, and natural touch to every kitchen, matching both modern and rustic interiors. Even though the material used to make it – long handcut rye straw – is quite common, there are only a few basket makers left who know how to do it. It is woven by means of the sewing technique, using a basketry needle.

It is recommended to place a clean cloth between the bread dough and the basket, just like in the photo. If the basket gets wet, dry it well.

It has been made in the workshop of Zoja, a 65-year-old basket maker from Podlasie. By purchasing this product, you support local basket makers and help protect Polish craft.

the author of this product?

Zoja

She is a master basket maker weaving from straw. Zoja comes from the region of Podlasie where the Belarusian language is commonly spoken. Many families living there create straw objects using the spiral sewing method. This is one of the most basic and universal ways of weaving which can be found all over the world. To do it, you need handcut earless rye straw, willow splints, and a needle, which has been specially designed by Serfenta.

,,Serfenta is an exceptional project integrating generations, combining local patriotism, respect and creative attitude towards crafts, and the ideas of sustainable consumption and slow fashion.,,
