Doing Our Bit For The Environment
We believe in handmade, quality & skill. That is why we work closely with our makers to ensure our customers love their purchase & our products. We source products that have been handmade using the best natural & sustainably sourced materials so that our customers can enjoy & rely on our beautifully designed products that have been made with skill & are built to be a part of a lasting environment.
At Travelling Basket we set out to bring the beauty of traditionally hand crafted products to UK markets. Seeking out & developing a lasting relationship with all our makers to support sustainable businesses & traditional crafts.
Our business was born through need, our own need for these products, which is why we are here supporting traditional crafts, skills & innovation. We are passionate believers of "Buy less buy better". We value products that have proven themselves through design, material & craftsmanship to be dependable, so that they can live with us without creating a negative impact on our planet.
Everything we do at Travelling Basket incorporates these three beliefs: 'Handmade, Supporting our Artisans & Makers & Buy Less Buy Better' to encourage & celebrate the beauty of products that have been designed & tested to become life companions & even one day heirlooms.
We only use biodegradable packaging & bags which have been produced with fairly traded & sustainably sourced recycled paper. We also have for sale our reusable tote bags (made with fair trade & sustainable organic cotton) & we encourage our customers to choose this option as it is a bag that can carry again & again.
At Travelling Basket our vision for sustainability runs all the way from the sourcing of materials, the choice of products we stock to our storage & workshop facilities. The Travelling Basket's team has grown from within & has even hand built its own HQ, workshop & storage facilities in Scotland using 100% Scottish sourced native timber & low impact off grid design.
We care about our planet & we want to encourage our customers to care too. We believe that you can care for your planet whilst enjoying the wonderful gifts it has to offer through our sustainable & eco conscious business approach that celebrates hand craft skills & tradition & the natural materials.
