Storing Like the Romans Did

When people think about ancient Rome they tend to only see the majestic architecture and art as well as the bloody wars and the mad emperors. They often forget that there also were "normal" Romans with normal lives and normal items and tools to make said normal lives a little bit easier. For example baskets. A basket might not seem as fascinating as a marble statue but it still is important for the daily affairs of ancient Roman daily life. They were used for storage, for shopping and for decoration. Just like today. Nothing has really changed. Baskets in Roman times were mostly made out of wicker. You can find many wicker-made products still today. But the Romans used some special wicker-making techniques that gave their final products a very special and unique look. Just like the item at hand!

If you want to learn more about the normal daily life of the ancient Roman people then you should buy this basket! Nothing says everyday life more than a basic tool such as a wicker basket.
