What is it about a grocer’s bicycle basket that makes everybody sigh with nostalgic lust....?! Ours are made by hand by craftsmen who made the genuine article (back in the day!), each one is ever so slightly different but all have oodles of charm and involve age-old basketry techniques with lovely names like randing and slewing and whales! It’s capacious size means you can load it with goodies from the market, books from the library or whatever kit and caboodle you need to lug around town.
Our baskets are hand woven by traditional techniques on the Somerset levels here in the UK by P. H. Coate & Son, a family company founded by willow grower and merchant Robert Coate in 1819, and still run by the Coate family today. (A certain very famous wicker hamper is also made here - the quintessential Fortnum and Mason English hamper so we know we are in good company!)

Specially designed holes in base allow basket to fit perfectly to BEG or other types of front racks, either using rubber transport strap provided with BEG bicycles or your own cable ties or bungee cords.
