Coriandr Express: Heart and Soil Baskets

Yikes, i've been on a bit of a hiatus from the online world and missed out on blogging two riders on the Coriandr Express! Massive apologies to the sellers. Instead of back tracking, i'm starting with our current VIP, Heart and Soil, however blog posts about Tiny Pretty Things and Sweet Treat will be posted in the next few days!

This has to be one of the most unique shops on Coriandr. The craftmanship (or should that be craftladyship?) of these baskets is truly breathtaking.

Each basket is made by hand by Hen using Somerset Willow. This is one of my favourites as it would be wonderful to display hand spun and hand dyed yarns in - especially at shows and craft fairs. Definitely on my list of wants!

The texture on this one is beautiful. It would be hard to resit going foraging with this on your arm! This would suit my Mum as she is always uses a far to small bowl to pick her herbs and salad from her garden.

We all talk about reusing carrier bags for our shopping and such. Why not be unique and show your support for basketry by using this handsome example for your groceries!

To find out more on Hen and her uber basketry skills, read the interview on the Coriandr Express Blog. You can also check out Hens' blog and twitter for WIPs and instant updates!
