1840 Farm Basket Collection

Our coiled fabric baskets are made by hand at 1840 Farm. Each fabric strip is torn by hand before being wrapped around 100% cotton cording. The fabric wrapped cord is then coiled 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 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.
