Fabric BAsket

A basket is a type of container that was constructed traditionally from stiff fibers. These fibers were made from a variety of materials including cane, wood splints, and runners. Whereas a majority of baskets are made from plant materials, other different materials like baleen, horsehair or metal wire can also be used. Baskets are commonly woven by hand. There are those baskets that are fitted with a lid while others are left open.

A basket is a crucial product for everyone. There are different types of baskets ranging from laundry, groceries, and shopping and even fruit baskets. Baskets are mainly used for storage and transport though a few are used as sieves and others used for fishing. Besides these uses, there are some special baskets used for religious purposes and others are used as decorations.

In the case of those who transport grains and cereals, they prefer the baskets with lids while those who carry groceries prefer open baskets to maintain the freshness. Before, people struggle to carry their groceries and cereals before acquiring a basket. Transportation using the basket has been done for many centuries, and this is why the basket has stood the test of time. It is easy to carry, it is not complex to use hence anybody and everybody can use it for transportation of different kinds of items.
