Just a Basket

When asked about ancient Rome most people think about the great orators, the fulminate architecture, the bloody battles and the staggering cultural accomplishments. But many people tend to forget that Rome was not only one giant conglomerate of art, but also had normal people with normal lives in it, that did normal things on a daily basis. Normal things like shopping, or carrying stuff. In order to do so you need a bag or a basket. Just as you do today. So it should not come as a surprise to anyone that the ancient Romans too had tote bags at their disposal. Those were mostly made from elastic plant fibers, e.g. palm leaves. You could carry great weights in it. The tote bag at hand is a replica of an original archaeological find made in the former Roman province of Judea, modern day Israel.

If you too desire to experience not only the famous side of ancient Rome, but also the side of everyday life then this is just the item for you. It also makes for a fancy and unique tote bag, should you need one. It can even serve you well as a present.

5 from 5 Sturdy and flexible

Lovely small basket - although it will hold fleece, spindles and spun balls of wool with ease. Ideal when I dont want to take my large willow basket with me to re-enactment events. I love how flexible it is after the rigidity of willow - and that its based on archaeological finds.
