The Longaberger Company was established in 1973 by businessman and entrepreneur, Dave Longaberger. They are America’s premier maker of handcrafted baskets which are sold through direct selling agents throughout the United States. Aside from the baskets, they also have pottery and home décor items. Longaberger baskets are known for its craftsmanship, innovative design, quality, and time honored history.

Although founded in the early 1970s, the Longaberger family has a long history of basket making starting with John Longaberger who produced basket wares in the late 1800s for local potters who used the baskets to move pottery to and from the kiln. His son, J.W., apprenticed under his father and perfected the precise type weaving style which became the trademark of Longaberger baskets. Dave, the third generation Longaberger, founded the company in 1973. Dave had a vision of giving ordinary Americans the opportunity to earn income and start a business by becoming independent distributors of Longaberger products. Today, there are tens of thousands of Longaberger Home Consultants across America.

The Longaberger Company is now presently led by its CEO, Tami Longaberger, who is committed to carry on her family’s time honored craft, to providing opportunities to others, and supporting American innovation and craftsmanship.
