Wicker Hamper Boxes

A perfect blend of functionality and craftmanship, our dark brown wicker baskets are a timeless classic for any gifting occasion. Handcrafted from split willow, these hampers are finished with vegan leather straps and hinges. This adds a touch of rustic elegance to the presentation of gifts whilst upholding a commitment to sustainability so you can rest assured our baskets are animal and cruelty-free.

Wicker hampers are lightweight, sturdy and incredibly durable. This ensures items remain safely nestled within the hamper ready for shipping when packed with your choice of wood wool or shredded paper. Their closed lid creates an element of excitement and anticipation for the end consumer, much like when unboxing parcels, while the buckled straps ensure secure closures.

Our hampers are finished to an exceptionally high standard, not only exuding luxury, but also reusability. This adds greater value to the act of purchasing from your establishment as the end consumer can reuse the hamper for gifting, storage, or anything else. A perfect addition to Kite's gift packaging range.

What is split willow?

Split willow refers to a technique which involves cutting the willow stem in half, resulting in a flat and rounded side. When used to weave wicker hampers, or baskets as they are also known as, the rounded side is positioned on the exterior, while the flat side sits on the interior. As a result, less material is used, effectively reducing the environmental impact of an already inherently sustainable product.

This method aligns with eco-conscious practices by maximising the use of each willow stem and contributing to a more resource-efficient and eco-friendly manufacturing process.

What can be packaged in a wicker basket?

Wicker baskets are versatile and can be used to package a wide range of items, from gourmet foods, wines and chocolate, to spa products and seasonal gifts. Once they have served their initial purpose as a hamper, they can also be reused by the end consumer for a range of functions, including as picnic and storage baskets.

Are wicker baskets eco-friendly?

Wicker baskets are incredibly eco-friendly as they are handwoven from willow which is a rapidly renewable resource. The cultivation and harvesting of willow involves fewer environmental resources and chemicals, and once hampers reach the end of their lifecycle, they decompose without leaving a lasting environmental impact.

Each basket is handmade and therefore unique, as well as being more sustainable than mass-produced, machine-made alternatives.
