About lovelinebaskets

Sales 427
On Etsy since 2018

Creating loveline baskets has been one of the most helpful things for me while grieving the loss of our son.Thank you for your continued support. 💚💚

My name is Gallit Cavendish, and I, along with my husband and two daughters Calliope and Poppy, live in the beautiful small town of Bowdoinham, Maine, where we own and operate a small organic farm. I am a professional chef by trade and have always been very passionate about cooking beautiful food. One day 12 years ago, a farmer walked into the restaurant where I was the Chef looking to sell his beautiful vegetables. Not only did I love the produce but I fell in love with the farmer as well. Shortly after, I left my job, moved onto the farm, got married, and started a family. We have a lovely life here together.

6 years ago, our son Elon was born and died just 8 short days later.

Deep in despair, I found myself at my sewing machine trying to find something positive, something beautiful. Loveline Baskets came about over the years as a way for me to center in this grief and to find a new way in life. My husband and I tried for years to have another child. Due to many challenges beyond our control, we could not conceive without costly intervention.

Loveline Baskets is a labor of love for me. It has allowed me to create beautiful items and stay centered on being a good mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and active community member. This process has allowed me to find and choose joy every day in addition to paying for the intervention that gave us our beautiful daughter, Poppy.

I believe that I have been able to turn the work of my sorrow and grief into something beautiful and meaningful.

Throughout my life, I have always been creative. As an adult, cooking professionally became my main creative outlet, but I have enjoyed pottery, painting, baking, sewing garments, and many other art forms. My baskets combine all of those expressions; creating large pots of dyes, working with color, and sewing new shapes for people to enjoy.

I love what I do!

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you enjoy looking at and using your Loveline basket.

Frequently asked questions
What type of thread do you use?

I use bonded nylon thread made by A and E an American company specializing in high-quality thread. This very strong thread aids in the structure and durability of the basket.

What kind of machine do you sew on?

I sew on an industrial sewing machine. The brand is Highlead.

Do you wholesale your baskets?

Please contact me directly for inquiries about wholesale availability.

Do you offer free shipping?

I offer free shipping within the United States on most items. Please contact me directly if you are interested in purchasing a basket and live out side of the US.

Do you dye your rope or buy it pre dyed?

Loveline Baskets are made using 100 percent cotton rope that is hand-dyed in small batches by me. I use eco-friendly synthetic dyes for long-lasting vibrant color.
