Mushroom hunter and Lafayette Flats co-owner, Shawn Means designed this basket with the help of West Virginia artisans, Judy and Mike McDade. The basket is approximately 9"W x 16" L x 15" T. An indention on one side prevents the basket from bouncing off your leg while hiking, and allows it to be held closer to the body in a thicket.
A longitudinally oriented handle allows the basket to be held in a natural arm and hand position. The basket has a wide flat bottom so it can sit on the sloped ground without falling over.
