1840 Farm Basket Collection

Our handmade fabric baskets are made using the same technique my Great Grandmother used in her New England farmhouse over a century ago.  She lovingly transformed worn clothing into useful household items.  While her items were made purely with utility in mind, it is my goal to create beautiful handmade items that can serve a useful purpose while adding a touch of farmhouse style to your home.

Our coiled fabric baskets are made by hand at 1840 Farm by multiple generations of my family. Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being joined together and wrapped around cotton cording. The fabric wrapped cord is then shaped and stitched together using a zigzag stitch on our sewing machine. I continue to wrap the coil and shape the basket as it is stitched, ending in our trademark fiddlehead spiral design. Because the baskets are hand shaped, each one is a true original.

Each basket we make is part of the 1840 Farm Basket Collection. Every basket in the Collection comes with a hand signed product tag that includes the date that the basket was finished. Each basket is numbered and displayed in our photo gallery.

We use repurposed fabrics purchased at local charitable thrift stores to make our baskets. The purchase of these fabrics benefits local charities and gives back to the community. Your purchase will help to support the charitable organizations that provide these recycled fabrics for sale. We blend new fabrics and materials with the recycled fabric to create a pleasing color palette for each basket. Each basket has its own unique color pattern and slight variation in shape.

All of our baskets are available as the in stock, ready to ship baskets listed for sale in our shop or as custom order baskets. Our custom order basket program allows our customers the opportunity to choose the fabric and thread used to create their truly one of a kind basket.
