Returning to an Ancient Craft

English Willow Baskets have been in existence for centuries and after leaving school, I joined my late Father in the Family Business. With Dad's never ending patience and guidance, I became proficient in the traditional style of willow baskets, made for the home and garden and made to last.
The techniques are unchanged and I have returned to this craft after a twenty year break in a very different career. I started making again from July 9th 2020 and surprisingly remembering all the techniques from years ago.
Countryworld Baskets is based in the most easterly town of England, Lowestoft, and I use only the best Willow for both my own designs and for traditional basket designs.
I hope you find my range of baskets interesting and I if you are looking for something specific, either size or shape, please contact me for a quote, for your very own handmade bespoke Basket.

    I started working with my late father, Frank Philpot, in a small shop in the village of Wrentham, Suffolk in 1982. In 2001 I moved to work in local Government and in 2020 decided to rekindle the ancient skill that had remained unused for so long.
