All our baskets are hand woven or crocheted using locally sourced materials. Many of our baskets are still dyed in the traditional way using their soil and bark, extracts of plants and flowers. Commercial textile dyes are now being used in the brighter tones. Making baskets is a slow process; after decorticating (removing the bark) from the spikey sisal leaves, the fibres are then twined, dyed twice and dried by the weavers. Whilst each basket is made with great care and patience, occasionally a little bump in the sisal or a knot in the wool can be seen. This will not affect the baskets durability and only adds to the charm of the craft. Some of our baskets have the weaver’s name stitched on with a few stitches, these can be left on or simply cut to remove.
