This sweet little basket has been made with raffia, that I hand-dyed with blackberries. Back in September, I spent a glorious afternoon foraging for blackberries with my children. Most of them got gobbled up in apple and blackberry crumbles, but I saved just enough to dye some raffia.

It is the perfect size for keeping trinkets and treasures safe, but can also be hung by the loop detail in the border.

Since moving to the Orkney Islands, the natural world has become a big part of my life and an inspiration for my work. I am constantly looking for new ways to use the plants around me for crafts and to deepen the connection between making and nature.
