We are delighted to confirm that the Olivia basket bag is the one extensively featured, beautifully photographed and waxed lyrical about by Lydia Millen, Times Top 30 UK Influencer… if you want the double handle one she features too, this is Sasha!
Sarah K says:
‘I leave my Olivia basket in the hall or the boot of my car. It’s strong and holds quite a lot, with everything stacking neatly inside. Handy for everything and anything!’
For a better visual description of size and shape, here’s our helpful You Tube video showing this basket in use:
And here is another Video explaining How it’s Made
- Hand woven from palm leaves with leather handles
- Made in ‘plaited rounds’ this basket has a finished edge which will be higher on one side – click through photos for details
- Large, strong basket
- Comfortable short padded leather handles (40cm total; 20cm halved)
- Basket Dimensions: W50 x D20 x H35cm (approx*)
NB: Hand woven plaits result in a ‘stepped’ finish on the reverse side at the top of the basket. The plaits are started in a roll at the base of the basket. This is the correct finish for this bag.
Please excuse us whilst we change! We are currently transitioning from our white and green tags to either a sewn-in embossed lozenge (which is the version we are going with permanently) or an embossed tag as shown in the photos.
The reason for this part of an effort to reduce our carbon footprint as these tags were sourced from China. Our new ones are made by the leather artisans who to the leather for our baskets.
