Founded on the belief that baskets are like cushions and shoes - you can never have too many - Saffron Basket Company is the brainchild of Rachel Walker, who spent 18 years globetrotting before returning to her Walden roots to raise her two girls.

Deciding to put her well-honed souk shopping skills to good use, Rachel started sourcing objects of beauty from overseas to sell here on home turf. The result is a beautiful range of baskets handmade in Morocco, woven from palm and finished with sturdy double-stitched handles.

“Basket shopping is like bra shopping,” adds Rachel, “it is definitely not one size fits all! So we help our customers find the right basket for them; because they are handmade, each basket is unique.”

Showing and selling her wares on Saffron Walden market as well as in her online shop, Rachel has baskets of all shapes and sizes - and she’s giving Velvet readers the chance to win one of her biggest summer basket bags, pictured centre, ideal for everything from beach trips to grocery shopping.

The design is named Kate after her mum, “who’s always said: ‘With wholesome hair and skin and a good basket, darling, you can go anywhere!’. . .”

For your chance to win the Kate Market Basket, worth £38, click HERE and complete the form using the code ‘BASKET’. The competition will close to entries at midnight on August 20 2021 and the usual Ts and Cs apply.
