On Etsy since 2011

We can make it!

Naturally Useful's makers are working away in the Pole Barn all year round and what you see on the shop is only a fraction of what we produce so if you see something you like but want it in a different size, colour, shape or size, we can make it!

Maybe you have an idea of your own you would like us to produce for you? A special gift, a custom tool, a basket to fit a particular or unusual space in your home? We are happy to hear your suggestions and work with you on your ideas, there is no job we won't consider, so get in touch! Don't be scared, we don't bite...much.

Please be aware if a basket is not in stock, it can take 2/3 weeks to produce your order due to varying soaking times to prepare the willow for weaving.

Thank you for looking at our Etsy shop.

    Owner, Maker, Designer

    I have a passion for taking locally sourced materials and turning them into useful products. Most of my work has some material i have gathered. Willow and hedgerow into baskets, sheep's wool into thread and felt, animal skins into beautiful rugs.

  • Lisa Campbell

    Maker, Designer

    From high street to home, from outside to fireside, from field to feast, we all need a basket for our journey...since forever! They help us carry the things we need and protect the things we love... ..and much nicer than a plastic bag!
