Give those wheels an instant style upgrade with this ultimate bike accessory: the bicycle basket. Our bright and beautiful bike baskets are designed in house by Paniery and hand woven from local local grass ( Ndiorokh) in Senegal
Fill up your front basket on shopping trips in town or pack with picnic food and a good book for days out in the countryside - you can even use your bike basket for carrying your dog!
The very thing for picking up flowers at the local market and days out pedalling through the countryside, our woven bicycle baskets are spacious enough to store all your books and stationery, your picnic lunch, or your gym kit and trainers.
Equally impressive as a front basket or as a pannier attached to the rear of your bike, the Rijksboom can also be secured to stairway bannisters as a chic storage device, as well as bathroom towel rails and cots.
Each bike basket is a work of art - taking up to three days to weave by hand - and is made from wild Ndiorokh grass. This indigenous grass is hand-rolled before it is ready to be woven by a skilled member of our partner weaving in Senegal.
Most weavers in the Senegal are agricultural workers, though relying on a season’s rainfall makes for unpredictable living. Basket weaving – one of the oldest crafts known to man – has become a source of alterative income for these communities in the dry seasons, helping families to meet their basic living costs more comfortably.
When you buy one of our beautiful woven bicycle baskets you become a part of this story.
Each bicycle basket comes with a thank you card from the local artist- painter.
Each bike basket is supplied with two dark brown leather straps.
If your basket gets wet, simply leave it to dry naturally and re-shape. When not in use, we recommend storing somewhere completely dry (and damp proof!)
As each basket is individually handmade, some variation in size and colour may occur.
