A Real Catch

It's about time this rope turned its life around. As "float-rope", it was once used to tether together underwater lobster traps off the coast of Maine, where it also posed a danger to the Northern Right Whale. Then, once such usage was outlawed, hundreds of thousands of pounds of leftover line threatened to flood into landfills.

Now, these wayward cords have been rehabilitated, finding new life as vibrant, earth-friendly baskets. Created using traditional basket weaving techniques, the ropes combine rugged sturdiness with bright, uplifting colors. A circle of pressboard inside provides the basket's bottom and helps it maintain its cylindrical shape. And whether it's toting picnic gear to the beach, or adding a nautical splash to your home, it's sure to bring nothing but goodwill from now on. Handmade in Down East, Maine.

    Guess I didn't read the dimensions so it was bigger than expected which was a nice surprise. I can see this for a multiple of uses. Love the fact that it is recycled material.

      Comments about LOBSTER ROPE BASKET:

      This attractive and sturdy basket has dual function's! Removing the lobsterline from the sea - thus avoiding tangling and killing whales and other ocean species and finally a sturdy basket aboard our boat to collect shoes! I have had many baskets but most are not design for the elements of a sea climate .... this is it - the only draw back: it could be a little bigger!

        I purchased this basket as a birthday gift and was completely satisfied. It is very unusual and not something that you could buy in any store. Great idea in recycling!

          This basket was even bigger than I thought after looking at the dimensions. The coloring is so unique as is the story behind it. My mother in law LOVES it! I would definitely buy this again.
