Woven into the shape of a honey pot, this basket looks great next to the fire for storing peat or next to the sofa to keep your favourite blanket close to hand on those chilly winter nights. Colour variations will occur as all of the willow naturally grows in different shades of browns and greens, Diane selects and matches the colours together in her own designs.
Diane came up with this design after seeing some sculpture work by a Danish designer who was using a particular spiral pattern. Wanting to make a more funcional object she reworked the design and ended up with two half spirals joined together with a bridging handle in the form of a birch branch.
This basket measures 44cm tall x 30cm wide.

Willow is a yearly crop which Diane harvests herself, without the use of any chemicals or machinery, and all waste cuts can be composted and returned back to the E arth. The crop continues to grow every year with very little interference, and if left alone the willow beds would turn into a little woodland. Willow sequesters large volumes of carbon whilst growing, and is then cut, dried and woven into baskets to last for generations, so a Saille Basket could be considered a carbon offset purchase - good for the Earth, and for us all.
