Picnics and Park Dates

Our woven picnic basket is the ultimate al fresco accessory: roomy enough to hold a feast and sturdy enough to carry a few bottles, jars or tins. We’ve taken ours camping, too – they’re ideal for filling with plates and cutlery and using as a woven organizer of sorts! Outside of picnic season they make for practical and pretty sewing, craft or toy baskets. Oh, and it’s currently 30% off in the summer sale!


Two-wheeled Adventures

Pick Your Own


BAWDIE: Red, Brown and Yellow Market Basket

A round market basket is possibly the most versatile summer accessory – take yours to your local PYO farm and fill with fruit and flowers, or use yours for taking towels, books and sun cream to the beach. These Ghanaian baskets are also fab for bringing your gloves, trowels and seeds in and out of the garden if you’re the green fingered type. Each one unique, these market baskets are also available in mini sizes. And they’re all in the summer sale right now…

Bucket bags are both stylish and versatile, which is what we’re all about. Our upcycled yarn bucket bags are all one off designs, handwoven in Kenya and designed by the weaver. Bold and unique, they make brilliant festival bags.

Beach Days

NDEVU and SKETI are the the ultimate summer bags looking most at home on a Balearic beach or perched poolside in the South of France. Likewise, these fringed sisal shoppers will bring a dash of the Med to your local lido if you’re staycationing this summer. Both are now in the summer sale!


City Breaks & Day Trips

KAZA comes in two sizes and makes a stylish shopping basket or overnight bag for weekend breaks and getaways. Two tone in colour and hand dyed usual natural products like soot and charcoal, two handcrafted leather handles finish the look. When it’s not filled with shopping or your PJs and wash bag, KAZA makes a handy laundry basket and looks beautiful simply hung on the back of a door.
