These felt storage baskets are screen printed by hand using a combination of exposed screens and hand cut stencils. They are made of thick felt in a marl grey colour. The large square basket measures approximately 20cm high x 32cm wide. They are printed with environmentally friendly inks and the baskets have naturally dyed leather handles fixed in place with rivets.
Each basket is printed by eye, making each one slightly different and unique. Made from a single sheet of felt, once printed and the ink set, the felt is then carefully cut and folded into its basket shape and stitched to hold it in place.
Available in two colourways choose from a netural palette of soft pink and earth tones or a vibrant navy and fluro orange combo . The design was inspired by the stunning sunsets and sunrises of the East Neuk coast where I live and work and the idea for the baskets came about from a long held desire to print on felt. Printing on felt feels very different to printing on linen and cotton - the felt requiring more phyiscal pressure and pulls of the squeedgy across the screen to print and it sucks up much more ink too.
The baskets can be used in a multitude of ways. Use them for stashing your knitting or latest craft project, for storing books and beauty products by your bedside, holding keys and wallets on a hallway table, or use one to keep clutter at bay in the kitchen. They also make great gifts by themselves and can be used as an alternative hamper filled with tasty treats.
