Description

Give your wheels a style update with the gorgeous APANA woven bicycle basket. Designed in-house by The Basket Room, this unique bike accessory features turquoise and fuchsia patterning against natural grass, and is oblong-shaped.

Load your front basket with picnic treats and a comfy blanket for a lazy day by the river, or use yours for carrying your trainers, kit and bottle to and from the gym. This bicycle basket is roomy enough for your textbooks and stationery, and can be attached to the rear of your bicycle as a chic pannier if preferred. A most versatile storage solution, the APANA can also be fastened to cot rails as pretty nursery storage, and can store toiletries, flannels and towels on a bathroom rail. Each bike basket takes up to three days to weave by hand, and is made from wild veta vera – an indigenous crop also known as Elephant Grass. This grass is harvested, split, hand-rolled and dyed before a skilled weaver from our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana sets to work on it.

To become an owner of one of our woven baskets is to become a part of our journey: a positive story of sustainability and generations of craftsmanship. We are dedicated to supporting the weavers in a truly fair and reliable trade, supplying a regular source of income to help sustain farming communities whose primary income – agriculture and livestock – can be perilously unpredictable and reliant on rainfall.

Each bicycle basket comes with a thank you card from the weaving co-operative that made yours. Want to know more about the people behind the baskets? Meet the weavers here

 Also available in child's size here

Material:  VETA VERA GRASS & LEATHER

Dimensions

Regular: D25cm x W35cm x H25cm (approx)
Small: W29cm x D18cm x H22cm (approx)

Each bike basket is supplied with two dark brown leather straps, as seen in the 5th photo.

If your basket gets wet, simply leave it to dry naturally and re-shape. When not in use, we recommend storing somewhere completely dry (and damp proof!)

As each basket is individually handmade, some variation in size and colour may occur.

Love it!

Heading to France soon and had to find a basket to carry goodies back from the market. The Basket Room had a great choice in different sizes, I loved the colours available - ordering was easy and my basket arrived well packaged a few days later. A great experience.
