We like handmade: Toino Abel
Just stumbled upon these awesome colorful baskets by Toino Abel. They're made entirely by hand in Portugal using traditional methods. The colors and patterns are so vibrant and striking that it takes all of our might not to buy one and expand our already too large picnic basket/bag collection. You should totally go to their etsy site and get one and let us borrow it though (a deal at $45 for the largest bag!).
Best of all, their site has a pictorial step by step of how and where the baskets are made. Really great sequence that makes you appreciate the loveliness of the baskets even more.
