Not only does David work on this shop, but he's also a basketmaker.

This basket was made by David using mostly boiled and stripped buff willow for the base and sides, with a stripe of red willow (with bark attached, not artificially coloured).

The size is the traditional English 14" wide, 12" front to back and 9" tall (i.e. 35 cm, 30 cm, 23 cm). A set of straps are provided to attach the basket to most handlebars. This works best with a short stem and handlebars for an upright riding position, like those which we sell.

Read more about the different natural colours of willow, or about the history of basketmaking in David's family. There is also an online gallery of customers bikes fitted with David's baskets.

If the basket is listed as in stock, then it can be delivered straight away. However, we've had problems in obtaining willow recently, and sometimes it's difficult to find enough time to make baskets, so if it says "30 days" above, it could take a while.
