These baskets are a variation on the Traditional Welsh Cyntell Basket which is made to an age old recipe which has been handed down through the generations. The central ribs and hoop are made from locally sourced hazel which I gather during the winter months and then dry thoroughly before weaving during the summer.
I grow all my willow on my small field in Pembrokeshire, this gives me a personal connection to the material I am weaving with and a wonderful choice of colours! This is a shallow tray/basket woven with my, home grown in Pembrokeshire, intensely coloured Flanders Red Willow or a mixture of colours as you wish. These trays are stunning as a wall piece but then completely functional as a foraging basket, mushroom tray or bread basket. The perfect willow item for foodies!
