The kishie is a multipurpose basket traditionally made and used in Shetland to carry fuel, manure, crops and other goods. Shetland is a predominantly treeless environment, so kishie baskets are made with Shetland oat straw and soft rush, both of which are more readily available on the island than wood.Traditionally kishie baskets were made of black oat straw and soft rush or grass arranged in bundles called ‘hjogs’ and held in place by two-stranded strings or ‘simmins’.
