Somerset Willow Log Basket


Each log basket is hand-woven in Britain using aged buff coloured willow grown in the West Country. A traditional waxed cloth from Fox Brothers, which is used to line each of the willow baskets, complements the exterior.

Made in Britain using traditional methods and materials, these baskets have sturdy natural hemp rope handles and are topped with hand-stitched chocolate brown leather. The soft and supple panel hide leather is especially selected by The Merchant Fox from one of Britain’s oldest tanneries, based in Devon.

  • Weathered buff willow grown in Somerset

  • Hand-stitched panel hide leather top

      Our log baskets are made in Somerset by a fourth generation weaver at what is the last remaining site for commercially grown willow in this country.

      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.

      The leather used to top the basket is tanned in Devon using the finest quality panel hide giving the leather a unique finish and rich colour. Each hide is hand selected by The Merchant Fox from the tannery to ensure the highest quality and best character.

      The Fox Brothers cloth used to line each basket is mid-grey, lightweight and waxed, cloth design may vary.
