square weaving

kulta katriina basket

Remaining from the previous Kulta Katriina traditional woven basket, the lower parts of the bags remained, resulting in a basket of eight square and four corner pieces. The strips used are cut from the part where the front of the coffee pack has a gold-colored pattern and the sides are black. A total of 132 strips went to make the basket.

The patterns are arranged in a woven square in the shape of a cross and in the corner piece respectively, but on three smaller sides.

The pieces were joined with a gift string and the top of the basket was finished with black anorak cord. The size of the finished basket is approx. 22,5 x 30 x 15 cm.

kulta katriina coffee bag basket

Kulta Katriina coffee bags have had different coffee cup patterns over the years and two different ones have been combined in this basket. Of these, the older ones (on the right with brown backgrounds) are from 2007-2008 and the newer ones from 2012-2014.

Two squares of the basket are woven from brown coffee bags on the right, joining strips cut from different parts of the bag. The other six squares are woven from the black and yellow coffee bags on the left. There are two squares of each design woven with different patterns. Each side of the basket has different patterns and the bottom contains two different patterns. Instructions for cutting into squares can be found in the weaving patterns.
