New Wicker Hampers & Shredded Papers!

By Carl Board • Monday 18th March 2024

Recently added to our gift packaging range: wicker hampers and new colours in shredded ZigZag paper .

Available in 14”, 16” and 20”, our new hampers are handcrafted from split willow, with vegan leather buckle straps and hinges. They are lightweight and sturdy, with a premium finish that makes them a timeless classic for any gifting occasion. 

Split willow refers to a technique which involves cutting the willow stem in half, resulting in a flat and round side. In wicker hampers, the rounded side is placed on the exterior while the flat faces the inside. Aligning with eco-conscious practices, this maximises the use of each willow stem and contributes to a resource-efficient and eco-friendly manufacturing process. 

Equally eco-friendly are our FSC and PEFC certified shredded ZigZag papers. Now available in ivory, daffodil, lavender and gold, these shreds are also reusable, recyclable and biodegradable. This aesthetic and sustainable void fill pairs perfectly with hampers, gift bags, boxes and more. 

Not too sure on how much shredded paper you need per hamper? Check out our table below.
