Basketry

Basketry, that is, the making of useful and often beautiful containers from natural materials is one of the oldest crafts known to man. The reason is not hard to seek, for there is no country in the world where there is not some kind of plant which can be used for twisting into baskets. In temperate zones such as Europe use was made and still is, of willow canes, rushes and so on, whilst in hotter countries of the equatorial belt, cane, bamboo and palm leaves could all be pressed into service. This early work by F. J. Christopher was originally published in 1952 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography.
