Hatton Willow is a small business committed to making quality willow baskets handmade using materials grown in the UK.

Based in the South Wales Valleys town of Caerphilly, famous for its Castle and cheese, we produce willow products using willow harvested yearly from our withy bed. Planted in 2009 it gives Hatton Willow a sustainable source of willow which is an amazingly flexible material. It also provides us with a source of willow cuttings, willow bundles and living willow that we offer for sale.
