Elegant Woven Paper Basket by Sew Danish

This is one of those dreamy pictures that played with my head at first glance... was it a gold and aquamarine ring perhaps? As lovely as that would be, instead it is a woven paper basket created by Birgitte Hendricks of Cambridge, England.

Woven Paper Bowl

A Danish textile and fiber artist, Birgitte works with paper rather than traditional birch bark, and implements an old Scandinavian basket weaving technique. Folding, weaving, painting, and sealing add up to make a surprisingly sturdy container that can be more than a beautiful conversation piece.

If you'd like to try your hand at making a basket of your own, Birgitte offers the instructions and long paper strips in her shop, Sew Danish.
