The oval basket is perfect as a traditional shopper, good capacity, but ergonomic. Variety can come in the choice of materials, colours of materials, pattern of weaving of base which can be made to a French or English style.
The sides can be straight or curved and have more or less side stakes, the more stakes the finer the work. Variety can also be introduced in the handles, single bow or more handles. Like round baskets complexity can be added with foot rims and interesting borders.
