Nina from WyldCraft Wyllow:“I’ve always been artistic and wanted to teach myself a new skill, so began weaving with willow at the beginning of Summer 2020. Based in South Devon at the very foot of Dartmoor, I make my baskets and decorations from willow grown locally whenever I can. I love the individuality of each creation: each piece is unique and the many varieties of willow allows me to play with beautiful colours and forms. Although willow is incredible to work with, I also forage for all kinds of vines and plants to create wilder, more varied items.
Enjoy your hamper!”
We first used WyldCraft Wyllow for our Foraged Christmas Hampers in 2020, having seen one of Nina’s posts on Instagram. The baskets being produced looked amazing and we had no hesitation in putting an order in for our hampers! It was important to us that the hampers were being made in the UK, rather than being imported from the other side of the world where working conditions are so poor, and the fact that the willow can be foraged was a huge bonus. The variety of products that are made by WyldCraft Wyllow means we will definitely be collaborating again in the future!
