French country basket in white wicker

This small French country basket is a must have in French country homes. It is handwoven by Lucile from Vannerie de la Meije, whose workshop is located in the French Alps.
This basket embodies authenticity and charm. It is made with organic white wicker and mixes several weaving techniques. Can you spot these different weaving details?
Initially used to go to the market, small backets are now a charming touch for the interiors. You can use it for a short walk in the countryside to gather flowers or as a decor in your kitchen to host fruits for example. It's also a great gift for a Francophile or France enthusiast: create a personnalized French gift box filling this French country basket with French food specialties. Et voilà, a unique gift for a loved one!

La Meije is a mountain in the French Alps. Her majestic and serene silhouette is the daily décor of La Grave village, where Lucile established her wickerwork workshop. She discovered the art of wickerwork a few years ago.
Lucile creates baskets of all sizes, with different types of wicker: white, raw or green. She uses biological wicker, certified Ecocert and cultivated in France. She pursues the French wicker traditions creating traditional models as well as designing her own creations or tailor-made requests. She participated for example with 10 other artisans to the manufacturing of 326 baskets for L’Occitane en Provence stores.
