    A common sight in South Carolina - it looks easy but requires many hours to complete an average basket, so $300 USD is typical for a ~12 inch wide item. f5.6, 1/2000, ISO 800.

    Yeah, some woven products are incredibly time intensive. I've forgotten the number for how long it can take to weave the finer quality Panama Hats, but it was a jaw-dropping number.

    Yep, the weaver can really make a difference. The better ones do get a much higher price in town. Getting a basket that sits on a table etc. that has a very flat bottom so it sits without any wobble - not always assured.
