Humble Origins- From meager beginnings, Harold and Elsie Roof began a small business weaving baskets for local farmers looking to distribute their produce. Over 75 years later, Roof Basket Works has now become international, issuing over 150 kinds of baskets to both commercial and private customers looking for quality at a low price.
Our modern facility begins the process with raw poplar wood obtained from local timber harvesters. From there it is veneered into thin strips of wood and hand crafted into a finished basket, each one as individual as a snowflake. The excess wood is then turned into mulch, to be distributed throughout our state to be used for boiler fuel and gardening. To intricately see the process, check out this video from the South Carolina Farm Bureau.
