Willow shortage

Please note that due to a limited supply of both willow and time I'm not making as many baskets as I used to.

At present I'm only making bicycle baskets which appear in stock on the website of our online bicycle parts and accessories shop. Click here to go directly to the baskets which are currently in stock.

We have two other small businesses with which we support ourselves, selling tried and tested bicycle components and organising cycling holidays in the beautiful area in which we live.

Custom made baskets for customers

Every basket shown here was made by myself in my own workshop. They are high quality, long-lasting and, above all, practical baskets. I've made many baskets in very many different shapes and can make special order baskets for you too. Just let me know what your requirement is.

I've sent baskets to people all around the world and some customers have been kind enough to send photos back to me of their baskets in use. Other photos I've taken myself before sending the baskets. See the repairs page for more unusual baskets.

You can also look at my standard line of domestic baskets or bicycle baskets.

If you need an unusual basket, please contact me for a quote.
