This rectangular zarzo basket was devised using the technique to make platters for the table in Northern Spain. Made with the Leicestershire dicks and Flanders Red varieties of willow grown and made by Sarah Hatton in Caerphilly. There are many uses for this basket including as a handbag but also as a basket for kindling.
Sarah Hatton started willow weaving in 2008. Sarah is passionate about the heritage craft of willow weaving and cares deeply about the quality and durability of the pieces that she creates. These high quality baskets have come from years of repetition and practice. When Sarah planted her own willow she realised that she could have a sustainable source of willow. She uses her own 26 varieties of different colours alongside willow from Somerset.
Any orders placed now will not arrive in time for Christmas. I have a blackberry basket in stock which can be posted up until the 21st December.
Thanks for your support and Merry Christmas.
