'My basket brightens up every room I put it in.  I move it about the house as I love how its eclectic mix with my rather traditional furniture adds a cheeky touch!  It makes me smile.  It also contains my secret stash (not so secret now) of Quality Street chocolates.'

Lucilla, Northumberland

'The sun is out and my dressing table is saturated with colour, these are the things that bring happiness to my day!  Beautiful tiny baskets from the Iranian women of Zan Artefacts.'

Tracey, Wiltshire

'My mini basket arrived bringing some much-needed cheer to its new surroundings.  Joyful colours, beautifully made by talented craftswomen.'

Gemma, Surrey

'My Banoo basket is an absolute delight and receives compliments by all who visit.  I love the combination of zig-zag pattern with joyful colour which evoke wonderful memories of summer travel.  It never fails to bring a smile to my face.'

Emily, London
