Korbo handwoven wire baskets are functional and timeless baskets with a history that dates back to the early 1920’s Sweden. In the old days, the baskets were used by fishermen and farmers or anyone who needed reliable carrying and storage that could withstand weather, wind, wear and tear. The design, vision and craftsmanship behind the basket is still as relevant today as then.
The photograph opposite is from 1947 and taken in the small fishing village of Skägganäs, located on the east coast of Sweden. The basket that the fishermen are using is the Classic 35.
