This rustic rib basket is made with hoops and ribs of willow shoots, and the handle is wrapped with the beautiful Purple Osier Willow.  The greenish cordage down the center is hand twisted using Rattlesnake Master leaves, a native tall-grass prairie plant that was once very common in the Midwestern prairies.  The brown weavers near the ends of the basket are the Climbing Prairie Rose, and the faint scars from the thorns that were removed can be seen as darker colored spots.  The rust colored cordage is hand twisted Siberian Iris leaves, gathered shortly after the frost.  All the materials for this basket were gathered and prepared entirely by hand, from the standing trees to the finished basket.
