Each of our attractive and practical Wool Work baskets has been made in Somerset by a fourth generation weaver at what is the last remaining site for commercially grown willow in this country.

Once a common practice across the British Isles, Somerset is the last remaining place where the raw materials are grown to produce high quality baskets such as the ones for sale here.

It takes five years of training before it is possible to acquire the dexterity and strength required to coax the willow into the sculpted baskets you see for sale exclusively on The Merchant Fox.
