red coffee bag basket with tilted square design
The tops of the coffee bags left over from the weaving of the white and black Juhla Mokka basket have been used for this, which are the same color as the back of the package. The gold-colored front part therefore remains inside the basket.
A combination of square weaving and windmill weaving has been used to weave the basket, where the length of the side of the square is half the length of the coffee bag strip. The squares are woven side by side and the basket is formed during the weaving, which is why it is no longer necessary to sew the parts together at the end. Below is a picture of two adjacent squares and a video instruction for basket weaving.

The height and width of this basket are three squares, and the depth is five squares. 268 strips went into this basket. The size of the basket is approx. 24x24x39 cm. The number of strips can be calculated from the number of squares in the basket, to which the number of strips folded to hide based on the length of the edge is added:
63 (squares) x 4 strips + 16 (edge squares) x 1 strip = 268 strips
