Handwoven in a decorative spiral weave using locally grown willow from Hilary's own harvest, this is a sturdy functional piece that will stand the test of time. Each basket is unique, as the chosen willow varies depending on when it was cut and where it was stored.

Care Instructions: Dust and wipe with cloth, store in a warm dry place
Hilary grows numerous varieties of willow on the Dartington estate, Devon. Between November and March she harvests the crops, drying the rods and re-soaking for weaving as required throughout the year.
Hilary Burns is a Devon based basketmaker who grows, harvests, soaks and bends her own willow to create functional pieces and decorative baskets. Weaving has been a constant in her life, originally she trained as a fabric weaver before taking up the craft of basketry thirty years ago. In 1985, she planted several willow beds to grow her own sustainable materials – hazel, oak and ash. Her work is based on traditional techniques applied in a contemporary way to achieve a robust and natural look.
