The Lightship Collection baskets are woven with a very fine rattan cane material, which is the outer skin of the natural rattan fiber. These baskets are replicas of the Nantucket Lightship baskets, which were first produced in Nantucket during the whaling era of the 1800s.Most bicycle baskets are woven in a way you would make a decorative basket, one that you would use in your home as an accent piece. The problem with this is that this type of weave is not conducive to use in bicycle baskets, which serve a functional purpose and are used on a daily basis. The everyday wear-and-tear, as well as the natural elements on these bike baskets necessitate that they be woven in a tougher, stronger method. Our unique rolled rim weave ensures the baskets will hold up to the demands of everyday bike use. The Nantucket Bike Basket Company specializes in unique, hand-crafted baskets for your bicycle. Made from high-quality materials using durable weaving techniques, Nantucket Bike Baskets are made to last, while giving your bike that classic look.

Just right! My birthday gift this year was a new commuter bike. I bought a Trek Allant 7 WSD, and it’s perfect for running errands around town, getting to the beach, and just cruising around the neighborhood after a days work. I really wanted to outfit my bike with a wicker basket as I love the retro look. The Nantucket Lightship Classic dark stained is EXACTLY what fit the bill. This basket is well constructed, and it’s wood base makes it sturdy and roomy. I keep my cable lock, and a cloth sack that…

Cute for a weekend. Super cute and gives any bike a great look. But – it broke. This basket mostly carries a water bottle and a bike lock in it, so maybe about five pounds of weight? (I admit once it carried a gallon of milk) The screws that hold the Nantucket plate on fell out. That’s not such a hardship, but it bothers me to know I littered some bike path or trail. Small nails started to poke through as the basket started to break down — OUCH. The last straw was when the back of the basket bent in two. The…
