This sweet little raffia basket has been made with the small amount of raffia that I hand-dyed with fuchsia this season. The details are made with hand-dyed blackberry raffia. It has a loop worked into the border so that it can also be hung.

It is the perfect size for keeping on a dressing table to keep your trinkets safe or for filling with pot pourri or few dried flower petals to freshen a room and bring a little bit of the natural world into your home.

When I look at this little basket I see an afternoon spent blackberrying with my children, to gather the berries for the dye (and some delicious crumble!) and a basket full of blooms from our gorgeous fuchsia hedge as the bees buzzed busily around me.

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 nature and making.
