- Le Papillon Vert French Baskets
In 2010, Le Papillon Vert Ltd (Retail), selling French Market Baskets was born. Starting with a basic website and trading from stalls at lovely country fairs, the baskets attracted many customers looking for something a little different – for gifts, shopping, storage and many other uses!
Today, the retail core business is still very much baskets-focussed and it has also expanded into other seasonal products. Continuing to grow in an otherwise challenging environment, the business is run 100% online, retail alongside a new wholesale website – this means the baskets are still available all round the country in retail outlets and at upmarket fairs, but we can concentrate all our efforts on serving our online customer community.
With an emphasis on style and quality, together with great customer service, the demand for Le Papillon Vert’s Baskets has never been stronger.
Shipping to customers in the UK and all over the world, Le Papillon Vert is now a truly global brand.
Owner, Rebecca comments “Sourcing good quality baskets is a minefield. There are so many middle men, and it is a question of sorting the best from the rest. Our customers appreciate the fact that we find the best possible quality, and the resulting reviews speak for themselves.”
Sourced from specialist artisans, Le Papillon Vert Baskets are carefully checked to ensure the highest quality standards.
Rebecca (who has a background in FMCG Buying) comments: ‘It is relatively easy for retailers to buy from a supplier, but the key is in defining the specification in the first place. After this, choosing the right supplier, implementing excellent quality control practises and working with suppliers to ensure the best production methods is paramount. Even though the baskets are handmade by many different artisans, this is still possible if the right processes are in place. We do not want artisans to be disillusioned through a lack of communication as to our needs, to find lots of rejects once the goods have shipped, and we certainly don’t want to sell second quality products to our customers. We get some great feedback from our customers, and we are proud of our quality and service. If you want to buy a beautiful, long lasting french basket reliably, we are the place to buy from.’
Shipping is free to UK addresses, and we offer a low cost global delivery service, priding ourselves on the shortest possible delivery times.
