Keep a close eye on little one while they nap by bringing one of these exquisite Moses baskets home. We think a hand woven Moses basket would make a very special baby shower gift, too: ethical, stylish and hand woven with care. What’s not to love?
We have four different basket designs in stock, each with buttery-soft carry handles finished in sustainably-sourced goat’s leather. Since we all know that you can’t rush a masterpiece, every woven baby basket takes three days to complete - and they’re made by the same talented group that make our lovely bicycle baskets and square and rectangular storage baskets.
We search far and wide to partner with the very best weaving cooperatives across Africa, and we’re delighted to be offering greater volumes of work to these superb weavers with new orders for these colourful Moses baskets.
Tribal patterns, colour blocking and stripes characterise this quartet of baby bassinets – a small but perfectly formed collection with something for everybody and a design to complement all nursery colour schemes. Which one’s your favourite?

Whilst the majority of Moses baskets you’ll find on the High Street are woven and mass produced from wicker or palm leaf, ours are made veta vera grass which grows wild and abundant in Ghana. This robust grass is incredibly sturdy when woven, making for Moses baskets of beautiful balance and structural integrity. Each basket is supplied with a quilted, hypoallergenic foam mattress with a washable cover for blissful baby dreaming.

It must be noted that these baskets are not carrying devices and should only be used on the floor or on a flat surface when baby is inside.
