Description

The Basket Room Bike Basket is the perfect excuse to get on your bike! Sturdy, with attractive styling, and 2 strong leather straps to secure it to your bicycle. Versatile – attach it to the handlebars or under the saddle – the best place will depend on your preference and also the dimensions / style of the bike. Pack it with picnic provisions, books for college / university; or simply use as a shopping basket. Alternatively, attach the basket to bannisters, the side of a cot or even a towel rail and keep all sorts of things tidy!

Each basket takes up to 3 days to weave by hand, and every one is unique. Wild veta vera (also known as Elephant Grass) is grown, harvested, treated and woven by hand in Ghana. A final addition of contrasting colour or design completes the basket.

Choose from 2 designs.
