Pack Baskets

Pack Baskets
Completely handmade for us in Maine, these baskets are heirlooms!

Beginning with hand pounding the brown ash logs, to the individual ornamental weaves, to the final hand cutting of leather straps, each basket is unique!

Available in a very limited supply, we offer conventional pack baskets, covered baskets, and trout and boat creels. In addition to the baskets shown below we occasionally have, or can have custom made, very special baskets in a 1/8" weave.

Offered in three styles, the traditional R series to the left is available in 12", 16", and 18" sizes (the dimension is the depth of the basket).
R Series Pack Baskets XL 16 Pack Basket OT Series Pack Basket
The XL 16 (center) is 16" in depth and has more of a "pear" shape, our most popular basket, it is more costly because it takes longer to make.

We occasionally have OT series baskets (right), the most time consuming to make, in 14", 16", and 18". The 14" and 18" are available with a hardwood hinged cover and leather carrying handle.
Trout and boat creels
Made with the same exceptional Maine craftsmanship as our Pack Baskets shown above, these creels will last for generations!
