About Willow Direct

The UK and Europe's leading basketware wholesaler: Willow Direct have used over 25 years of experience in the basket trade to bring together a range of top quality contemporary and traditional willow products, including hampers, wicker drinks baskets, gift baskets and storage baskets.

As our name suggests, we supply baskets directly from our premises in the heart of England, to outlets throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe

Having the highest ethical and ecological values, all our basketware is manufactured from sustainable materials and handmade by artisans who work from our factory in China which is one of a very select few which has attained SEDEX accreditation and ISO 9001.

We understand not everyone requires a large quantity of baskets or packaging solutions in one hit - therefore, we have low minimum orders and flexible methods of delivery/collection (including drop-shipping) to meet your needs.

Beyond our standard range, we also offer bespoke products with a variety of different finishes and materials to achieve the right look and the right price! Plus, by utilising the latest leather printing technology, we can actually personalise each individual hamper.
