The baskets are made to hold merine flowers, which glow, as a natural light source for houses. They hang from ceiling or are placed don the floor, the shape and colour depends on personnel preference as dose the design and pattern adorning it.
Changes from basket to basket but they all have a flower in them.
No one really knows when the first one was made but is estimated to be at least 1000 years ago most likely more.
they are enchanted to withstand the heat of the flowers they carry and not to let to much light out.
