Sarah Le Breton Willow

Exeter, Devon

Unique, beautiful, practical and innovative baskets. An exclusive collection of willow baskets handcrafted for you in my Devon workshop.

Inspired by heritage baskets and celebrating the craft form that I love, I've taken time to design, develop and hand weave each basket. In so doing, I've created for you original pieces that showcase traditional basketry techniques, which highlight the beauty of natural materials and that are perfect for our modern lifestyle.

Made using locally sourced Somerset willow, all of the collection embraces sustainability.

The story behind the business
Meet Sarah Le Breton Willow

Based in South West England, I established myself as designer, maker and teacher. In my Devon workshop I create heritage inspired baskets, whole willow and rush chair seating and make bespoke willow lighting features.

I design, develop and hand weave products that are inspired by my craft forms' traditional heritage and that involve a higher skill set, ability and level of technique. By highlighting, driving up demand for and innovating this traditional craft my aim is to facilitate a living wage for UK basketmakers.

My hope is that this will enable the highly skilled techniques and knowledge of my craft form to reach future crafting generations. When not making or teaching I adventure through the UK in my T2 VW camper van. Renovating the van's interior myself has given me the opportunity to practice and hone basketry techniques whilst showcasing my craft form!
