All basket weavers

Discover British basket weavers making beautiful basketware the traditional way. We have selected makers who combine the best in authentic British craftsmanship with simple and timeless designs that sit well in the most contemporary home. Because not all baskets are the same.

In our book, a one-off piece that has been lovingly crafted in english willow is worth so much more than something mass produced. Baskets that have been crafted the authentic way will give years of pleasure and only get better with age.

And if you feel inclined to try your hand at basket weaving yourself, check out our Creative Courses section to find a workshop near you.
