Twining basket weaving

Twining basket weaving

Twined weaving refers to using multiple materials, one that is more rigid for the base and another two that are more flexible for the sides of the basket.

More details

Twining is similar to weaving but two strands are used to go under and over the ribs.

 

These types of baskets can be quite spectacular because three or more materials can be used to twine a basket. However, to do this you need to be quite experienced in twining as the strands have to be woven over and under the ribs in opposite directions.

There are also many variations to twining including such as leaving the warp open or twining on the diagonal.

 

Materials that are used for twining often include day lilies, cedar bark, reeds and rabbit brush.
