The Texas Basket factory is locally owned and is unique these days as a basket maker in America. They have a grand gift shop and even make Texas shaped baskets among other items. We always take out of town guests to see this fine place..

I like to support local businesses and this company has some of the nicest and well made baskets around. Sold direct from the factory where they are made, the staff are eager to help. And prices are reasonable.
