Does the whole Valentine’s thing make you cringe a little? You're not alone! Don’t resort to hiding your real feelings behind silly and throwaway gifts – because what is that really saying? Show them you cherish them with a gift that's as unique and as perfect as they are to you. Something that will bring joy throughout the seasons.


The answer, lovers, is handmade. Handmade gifts – like handwoven baskets - are crafted with patience and care. Baskets take time and simply cannot be rushed. And like all the most fulfilling relationships, you’ll keep discovering new chapters to your basket story. This is a gift that’s here to stay.
