The weaving of baskets is as old as the history of man. Basket weaving (also basketry or basket making) is the process of weaving or sewing pliable materials into two-or-three dimensional artifacts, such as mats or containers.

Each basket varies slightly in color and size as each one has been custom-made by our hardworking students to support their college education. Each basket is formed with a solid poplar base (which has been laser engraved with our student-made products logo. As a finishing touch, a hand-stamped leather medallion, with a symbol of what College of the Ozarks' is all about. HARD WORK!
