The Basket Man in Key West, Florida


The Basket Man at Mallory Pier is a nice attraction

He makes, or I should say weaves baskets from Palm leaves.

See the photo below for a good view of his work.

The brown basket there is in perfect condition and is soft and supple yet strong, and it is 15 years old.

As the basket ages, it gets brown in color but retains its nice quality because of the natural palm oil in the leaves that keep the basket soft and strong.
