Best Basket 2017

I’m over the moon that my Highland Hairmoss Basket has been awarded third prize in the Best Basket 2017 competition held by the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers. What a huge and unexpected honour!

The basket is made of hairmoss (Polytrichum commune), picked in Toscaig on the Applecross peninsula where I live, and plaited to resemble tweed on the outside and Astro Turf on the inside! Stitched with linen thread.
