These neat little baskets with their leather handles are the perfect size for a packed lunch, ideal for bringing a few snacks to work or to the park for an al fresco lunchbreak.
Diane developed this design while on a retreat with world-renowned basket weaver Joe Hogan. Providing her with the raw materials Joe helped her turn her idea into reality, combining leatherwork with bark and woven willow.
All of the willow is undyed and selected for its natural colours. A hardwearing naturally weatherproof material, this tote should last you a lifetime.
The bag measures 17cm tall x 23cm wide x 14.5cm deep. Each leather strap is approx 45cm long.

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.
