Coffee bag basket with art by Manuela Bosco

The 2021 Juhla Mokka Mother’s Day coffee bags depicted a work of art by Manuela Bosco. Mother’s Day bags have always been on sale for so little time that there is not enough time to collect them for a very big project, and this time the bags became almost the smallest basket that can be made with square weaving. The basket consists of two pieces, each with seven strips 10,2 cm wide. The strips are cut from the bag at slightly different points to make the whole pattern as visible as possible.

The pieces are connected by a gift string, which has also been used at the top of the basket to prevent the strips from escaping from the edge. From the image at the bottom of the page (with the YouTube logo), you can watch a video of this basket weaving on YouTube.
