About Simply Baskets and About the Basketweaver
I have been collecting and weaving baskets for more than decade and consider myself a fiber artist. Many of the baskets offered for sale here were personally hand-crafted by me in my Georgia home studio. Others are from my personal collection or proto-types from my basket classes, fiber art or demonstration baskets from basket weaving classes. Few were purchased for display purposes and for resale. Nearly all these fine handwoven baskets are a one of a kind basket.
Simply Baskets is the ONLY place one can purchase one of my fine, handwoven baskets. My baskets are not available in gift shops, home decorating stores, or other shops, nor are they available for wholesale. You can be assured that you are purchasing an authentic signed and dated Kathleen Becker basket by purchasing one of my fine baskets here. This is also the ONLY place where one can purchase one of my fine Nantucket baskets or Nantucket basket purses ready to ship!
Each basket shown is available for immediate sale and shipping. These baskets represent the finest in a variety of basketry mediums. As are all of my fine baskets, they are offered with an unconditional 100% satisfaction guarantee. You can buy with confidence, knowing that the baskets shown will be exactly what you receive.
If, for any reason, you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within three business days of receipt for return instructions, and upon receipt of the basket in sold condition, you will be issued an immediate refund. Initial shipping/handling/insurance costs nor return shipping charges are refundable as it is a performed service. Please see my FAQ page for additional information.
I will be adding new and exciting baskets as frequently as I am able. Custom orders for my Nantuckets keep me very busy! I enjoy working with dyed rattan reed in my spare time to craft many of these unique baskets as I experiment in different basket weaving techniques, textures and designs.
Since each handwoven basket is either individually hand-crafted by me personally, or one from my personal basketry collection, I am not able to accept wholesale basket orders.
I have been a member of the Nantucket Basket Makers & Merchants Association (now defunct), the National Basketry Organization, the Association of Michigan Basketmakers, the Indiana Basketmakers Association, the North Carolina Basketmakers Association, the Missouri Basketweaving Guild, and a charter member of the Georgia Basketry Association.
