For over a quarter of a century, Designer Baskets have been valued for their extraordinary design and craftsmanship. Their creator, Derek Downing, began designing and crafting his unique baskets in 1986. He has since exhibited his work at major craft and trade shows throughout the nation, and become acclaimed as one of those rare individuals who has elevated a craft to an art form.
