That's one elegant bike basket

Biking around with just a little bit of stuff is annoying. Say all you’re carrying is a book and your phone. If it’s nice out, you don’t want to wear a hoodie or jacket for their pockets, and bringing a bag or pack along for just one or two objects seems like overkill. Yet you have resisted the bike basket because, let’s face it, they’re dorky. This thing, however, might be right up your alley.

The Bent Basket is basically just a bent piece of wood with a simple strap system on top. Holds a laptop, a couple books, or a couple grocery items. Perfect!

If you’re interested, you’ll have to contact Faris Elmasu, the creator, directly; they’re all hand-made and probably cost a bundle.
