Perigord

I fell in love with this basket the first time I saw it, and had to learn how to make it.  It was unlike anything I had made before, and has a rythmn to it that is deeply hypnotic.  

 

The Perigord, also known as 'bouyricou' or 'bouiriou', is a traditional agricultural basket from the Dordogne in France.  It is a stunning basket, made using a spiral plaited technique, that results in a strong basket that looks like a fine piece of art.  It is perfect for gardeners, with its open shape designed to allow the soil to fall through.  And the basket is literally sealed with a 'kiss'!

 

Shapes vary from the more upright to more open depending on the individual style of the maker.
