We use traditional tools to weave rattan over handmade molds to create our Nantucket baskets. Various American hardwoods as well as exotics are used for handles, bases & lids and are made on a lathe or by using steam bending techniques. Our walking sticks & canes are made from raw buffalo or rams horn using heat and historical bulking techniques. The shafts are either turned on a lathe or natural that we have harvested, dried, straightened, prepared for use & are custom fit for customer.
