Handmade Baskets

 

Basket making is an ancient craft that weaves skill and time together. It is in its very essence, sustainable and in harmony with our earth.

Willow has been used for thousands of years as a material, purely natural and strong. Each basket is handmade by Diane Carton from her own willow beds nestled in the heart of the Boggeragh Mountains of Cork.  Drawing inspiration from her rugged wild homeland and Ireland’s rich basketry history and heritage..

Due to the handmade nature of these products, each item is truly unique.

The Skellig Michael

As many Star Wars fans know, May 4th celebrates all things Star Wars.

The Legend of Saint Patrick

After two challenging years around the world due to Covid, Ireland has cleared the way for its first full public celebration of St. Patrick’s Day in two years.
