Rachel's Willow Designs

Rachel is a basket maker and willow sculptor who takes inspiration from the natural world around her home studio in Abernethy, Perthshire. She hand weaves a wide variety of pieces for the home and garden, and also offers bespoke commissions and teaches willow weaving workshops.
By experimenting with different varieties of willow and a range of weaves, Rachel uses the natural beauty of the willow to provide texture and interest, giving each basket its own personality. She is a firm believer that the functional should be beautiful too and each piece is unique with its own personality. In her sculptures, Rachel likes to capture the charm and character of each animal by studying their form and physicality.
The sustainability and positive environmental impact of willow is key to the business. Each plant is coppiced and harvested annually for many years and absorbs carbon and provides a habitat for wildlife as it grows. Willow is a wonderfully flexible and versatile material, which is also biodegradable.
