The Berber Style Basket

Over the past few years, Berber style has exploded in popularity and is loved by interior designers and magazines for its subtle bohemian style. The Berbers are an ethnic tribal group from North Africa, who have a beautiful artisanal style of rug making. They often use graphic diamond shapes in their patterns, along with tassels with a special looping technique. This simple crochet basket has been inspired by their design, and sits perfectly in a modern home. 

Ideal if you are a beginner at crochet, as it only uses a few stitches, and once crocheted, this design is then cleverly stiffened. The finishing Berber style touches include oversized tassels and additional diamond stitching. Plus, if you are feeling super adventurous, there is a bonus section which tells you how you can line your new basket.

"I've had a subscription with makebox for about 6 months now and I have also purchased two ad-hoc boxes too. The quality is unlike any other box out there and value for money is unrivaled. There is always a little surprise in each box, whether it's a mini embroidery, necklace, even the beautiful post cards are delightful. If there are any issues they're quick to tell you and customer service are fast to respond and very helpful." - Erin


"I can't recommend Make Box enough. I've been crafting for over 30 years and I've been to every craft show possible but they still manage to come up with fresh and different ideas. The customer service is fantastic, you can change your box if required and they respond really quickly. Thank you for helping me stay sane in lockdown" - Katy
