This is a really exceptional basket in our collection! There are no two identical siwok baskets – each one is absolutely unique. It is very difficult to make – the material used, oak splints, must be heated in an oven until flexible. Siwok is the stronger brother of łopołka. Only one tool is needed to make it – a knife. The basket is extremely durable and has a classic shape. Thanks to its handle, it will serve perfectly for shopping or picking fruits and vegetables, it can be also used as a container for everyday objects at your place.
During one year, its creators – master Józef and his grandson Marcin – make just several baskets. It takes two days to weave one! By purchasing this product, you support local basket makers and help protect Polish craft.
