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.
