The 1840 Farm Handmade Jumbo Market Tote Basket

JumboMarketToteBasketCollageOur newly designed Jumbo Market Tote Basket was designed to meet the requests from our customers for a larger version of our existing Market Tote Basket with handles long enough to be carried by hand, over the wrist, elbow, or shoulder.  This is by far the biggest basket I have ever attempted to make.  It took several weeks to produce the basket you were all asking for, but I think that the finished basket was worth the wait.  I hope that you agree!

Like all of the baskets in our collection, these totes feature fabrics in a range of colors and prints accented by the zigzag stitching used to create the basket.  Our fabric baskets are flexible and can easily be turned inside out to display our signature fiddlehead spiral on the inside or outside and give the tote a completely different look.

JumboMarketToteBasketShoulderThe Jumbo Market Tote Basket is perfect for carrying fresh produce home from your farmer’s market or transporting your favorite book, towel, snack, and water bottle to the beach or pool.  We packed it with an oversized beach towel, sunglasses, wallet, keys, a great book, water bottle, thermos for iced coffee, a bottle of seltzer, a few allergy safe snacks, and a pack of gum.  As you can see, there was still plenty of room to spare.

 Our Jumbo Market Tote Basket measures 10 inches high. The top opening of the tote measures approximately 17 inches by 10 inches. The base is an oval measuring roughly 7 x 12 inches.  The base is reinforced with zigzag decorative stitching in a pinwheel pattern.

The finished handles each measure approximately 26 inches long and are made with five widths of the handwrapped coil used to create the basket.   The handles measure just over an inch wide and are double stitched for added strength and durability.  When the handles are extended, the height of the basket and its handles is 20 inches tall. The fiddlehead swirl that finishes the basket measures 2.5 inches in diameter.

Our Jumbo Market Tote Baskets are priced at $124.00 for in stock baskets and $134.00 for custom orders plus applicable shipping fees.  Our custom order design service allows you to select both the fabric and thread used to create a truly one of a kind basket.  We have over 175 unique fabrics in stock in our studio and also source specific fabrics and patterns by request.
