A Modern Hot Air Balloon Basket

This basket, constructed of wicker, aluminum and leather, is a product of Mike Adams Balloon Loft of Peachtree, Georgia. Production of Adams hot air balloons began in the early 1970s and continued until Adam's death in 1985. The company had a sterling reputation for technical advances in envelope design, and baskets that combined beauty and functionality. More than two hundred years after the invention of the balloon, the finest baskets are still hand-crafted of wicker and leather.
