The willow used in our products is grown organically in the UK. If there is ever a problem with willow beetle the grower simply knocks them off by hand. It is relatively easy to grow willow organically when produced on a fairly small scale with different varieties – however large scale growing creates a monoculture that if not sprayed suffers with many pests and diseases. Therefore we firmly believe in supporting many small scale growers and basket makers so that environmental standards can be kept at their highest – this same principle applies to all of our products.
There are no finishes used on any of the willow products.
