Our Sustainability & Ethics

At The Basket Room, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. Whether it is the materials we use, our long production cycles, how we support the artisans who weave our baskets, or using low-carbon transport. At every point of our journey, we always try to put the planet and people first.

All of these baskets are woven from veta vera grass which grows wild in Ghana and is incredibly robust: a stylish and sustainable alternative to plastic.
