Great also as a gift, this basket is perfect for holding exquisite Holly & Co treats. Each Brit 'B' Mine Berry Basket is unique, handwoven and made using locally sourced willow.

The Brit 'B' Mine Berry Basket is part of a new distinctive collection that Sarah Le Breton has created for you that both exemplifies her style, (and hopefully yours!) whilst embodying our rich UK basket craft heritage.
Handcrafted by Sarah in her Devon workshop, it is her aim to weave within each basket a magical combination of function, beauty and flow. Inspired by heritage baskets and the craft form that she loves, Sarah has taken time to design and develop each basket, in so doing creating for you original pieces that showcase traditional basketry techniques, highlighting the beauty of natural materials and making them perfect for modern living. Made using locally sourced Somerset willow, all of Sarah's basket collection embraces sustainability.
Handwoven by Sarah Le Breton, each Brit 'B' Mine Berry Basket has been crafted using the 'stake and strand' method and showcases rarer English basketry techniques including a traditional underfoot tied slath base and a weave known as an English Rand.
Only made using locally grown Somerset willow, each Brit 'B' Mine Berry Basket is created using a willow variety called Black Maul. The willow is stripped of it's bark to reveal a creamy white natural willow that is both highly prized and silk like to weave. Through experimenting with Indigo dyeing in a natural vat fermentation process, Sarah has been able to dye the white willow to give a wonderful array of blue shades. Please note that each Brit 'B' Mine Berry Basket is unique in colouration and whilst the indigo dye has been ‘fixed’, please treat like you would denim material.
Large: H 27cm x W 24cm x (H 43cm with handle)
Due to the basket's very nature, being both handcrafted and using a natural non-uniform sized material, the shape of each Brit "B' Mine Berry Basket may vary slightly. However Sarah aims to create each basket within a 2cm tolerance of the stated size and shapes each basket to perfection!
