    Crafted by Brooklyn-based Doug Johnston, the Sticks basket utilizes the density of the stitching to create embroidery-like designs on the basket surface. Made from 100% cotton cord that is coiled and stitched with sewing thread. The resulting textile is flexible, but stiff enough to hold its shape. Using a unique, layered process of coiling and stitching that he describes as “a cross between throwing a pot and additive sculpting,” Johnston works with his hands and an industrial sewing machine to sculpt cotton cord into vessel-like forms that are stitched together with colorful polyester thread to create embroidery-like patterns. The results feel at once completely plugged into the current zeitgeist and nostalgic—or, as Johnston puts it, both “familiar and unfamiliar.” Dimensions: 7" diameter x 21" H
