Basket, in my words + baskets

canwil : basket

The Illunse word for basket is canwil. Canwil Textiles of Georgia is a supplier of textile products notably canvas. CANWIL are fertilizer products from ANWIL S.A. of Poland.

This word is a mixture of the Old English word for basket windel, and the Latin word for basket canistrum (wicker basket (used for food/flowers and in sacrifices)).
There are other words in both Old English and Latin that can mean basket which I could have used.

This is a new word.

canwilas : baskets

The Illunse word for baskets is canwilas.

Baskets in Latin is canistra. Baskets in Old English is windlas.
