DUA: Handcrafted Black Block Tiered Bike Basket


£ 65.00




Treat your trusty wheels to a stylish upgrade with the beautiful DUA bicycle basket. Designed in-house by The Basket Room, this unique hand-woven bike accessory sports a wide black band design against natural grass, and is tiered in shape.

Load your front basket up with market flowers and fresh produce, or pack yours with books and picnic treats for a day out pedalling through the countryside. Our woven bicycle baskets also attach to stairway bannisters for storing away odds and ends, and can be fastened to bathroom and cot rails for keeping towels, toiletries and nursery toys tidied away. Woven by our partner weaving cooperative in Northern Ghana from wild veta vera grass, each bike basket takes around three days to weave once this grass is split, rolled by hand, and dyed in boiling water.

To become an owner of one of our woven baskets is to become a part of our journey: a rich tale of sustainability and generations of craftsmanship. We are dedicated to supporting the weavers in a truly fair and reliable trade, providing an alternative source of income to farming communities whose primary income can be perilously unpredictable.

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

If your basket gets wet, simply leave it to dry naturally and re-shape. As each basket is individually handmade, some variation in size and colour may occur.
