Picnic Baskets, Picnic Blankets, & Picnic Tableware Made in the USA

Hold on, let me count. Six. I have 6 picnic baskets made in the USA. My goodness. My favorite is an antique picnic basket that I inherited from my grandparents. I can just picture them in the 1940s having a romantic picnic together and it makes me smile remembering them. Sigh.

All of my picnic baskets are vintage and similar to the heirloom quality wicker picnic baskets listed below. I use them to store winter gloves and hats, garden supplies, yarn & knitting needles, and all kinds of other things.

If you already have a great picnic basket but need replacement picnic dishes, or need to fill your new picnic basket, we listed some great picnic tableware options too.

Enjoy your picnic!

Dresden & Company was founded when Longaberger closed its doors in 2018 after handcrafting heirloom quality baskets since 1896. The artisans were out of jobs and the basket capital of the world needed employment opportunities. Jim Lepi had a desire to carry on the tradition and provide jobs to Longaberger artisans who were out of work. Hence, he founded Dresden & Co. Today, the handmade basket-making tradition continues in Dresden, Oh.

Dresden & Company picnic baskets are handwoven and signed by local Dresden, Ohio artisans. The unique picnic basket design is available in wheat and ash gray. Other baskets ideal for picnics include a luncheon tote that hold 2 bottles of wine nicely and a casserole basket.

In addition to baskets, Dresden & Co. expanded the product line to include pottery made in Zanesville, Ohio, and other home furnishings and decor.

Because I’m such a basket lover, an Ohio resident, and a huge proponent of keeping jobs in the USA, it just made sense that I become an independent Dresden & Company proprietor to connect with other basket lovers, support an Ohio community, and give our readers access to handmade, heirloom quality baskets and pottery sold exclusively via independent Dresden & Co. proprietors. I’d love for you to shop with me for your Dresden & Co. baskets.
