Lacy bike baskets
Available in green, black, and white, these bike baskets were inspired by vintage Swedish crochet tablecloths. This is just the kind of thing I'd expect from the SFMoMA, but I was pleasantly surprised by the $50 price tag. This basket seems to me to be practical art. It is described as being used as a shopping basket as well, canvas strap included. I only wish I knew what it was made from (probably shopping basket plastic?).
I'd love to see the black lace basket on a black bike. Not terribly visible, but oh so elegant!
