    • He can make 1-2 baskets per day. It does not take long. But he walks miles to collect the hazelnut or willow sticks, boil, peel, dry them, and cycle 45 miles per day from Ukraine to Hungary and back (with 2 ridiculous and time-killing border crossing) to sell the baskets. He is Hungarian living in Ukraine and his village famous of basket weavers. He can sell one basket for 8-15 USD in Hungary, depends on size. Price is half in Ukraine. He prefer cycle.

      • Hi Zsuzsa: Thanks so much for those details. They make what he does even more amazing!
