Making baskets

A few years ago, I came across a couple of beautiful, plastic bead baskets at a flea market in Sweden. When I showed the baskets to my Swedish friends, they all nodded, saying ‘Ah yes. People used to make these. Very Swedish.’ But no-one knew how to make them anymore and I realised this was a forgotten craft and I would love to revive it.

Back home in Scotland, I studied the original baskets and developed a basic pattern and technique to recreate them. I have always made things and used my skills in sewing, knitting and designing to produce my first version of the Swedish bead basket. I knew straight away that I wanted to make more!

I started getting requests to make baskets for friends and their children. I decided to open my Etsy shop in late 2013 and called it HEJSAN GOODS (Hejsan is a super-friendly, Swedish hello!).

My favourite part of the process is designing. I love the folk motifs of the original baskets, but I am also drawn to bold, graphic shapes. I’m looking for a combination that will surprise me, but works. It’s exciting, often ends in disappointment - and I love it!
