“Our baskets are hand woven by artisans (normally farmers) from natural, sun dried palm leaves in the traditional way. Each unique basket takes 1-2 days to make and no two baskets will ever be exactly the same, like they would be from a factory.
They are then shipped in full containers from North Africa, by sea, with the shortest possible onward road journey to our warehouse in the UK. We buy used cardboard boxes for shipping, and use them again for wholesale orders; using fully recyclable sacks for retail orders. We are constantly reviewing better options. The objective of our business is to make and sell beautiful, strong baskets that are genuinely re-usable time and again – and to significantly reduce the need for single-use plastic bags…
I hope you will be enticed by our selection and find a basket you love! They also make amazingly useful and much appreciated gifts… ;)” Rebecca, founder of Le Papillon Vert (2011)
