Cranford Drive, Holybourne, Alton, Hants GU34 4HJ
phone: 01420 85112
BasketBasket is a family-run business in Hampshire. Having developed a love of baskets while living in France, founder Virginia Seeckts found it frustrating when she returned to the UK that she couldn't find lovely baskets here. So she launched BasketBasket in 2008 selling fairly traded natural baskets – a truly eco-friendly alternative to the plastic shopping bag.
 
Our baskets are handmade from sustainable grasses and other plants by talented artisans from family-run businesses in Morocco, Ghana and Madagascar. We pay fair trade prices, providing work for local people and preserving skills for future generations. We use eco-friendly packing and there are no plastics used anywhere in our natural baskets. 
 
We import mainly via road and sea, but to offset our carbon we are members of the Woodland Trust which creates new woods throughout the UK.

Tog Knives are a must for serious cooks
Tog Knives
Glenside, Oxleaze Lane, Dundry, Bristol, BS41 8LA
phone: +44 (0)117 276 0273

Tog knives are, according to many top chefs, the best money can buy. They're superbly sharp and durable and they make preparing food a joy. 

Designed by industrial designer Rob Beagley-Brown, a Tog knife is a hand-made, batch-produced artisan product. The blades are forged in Japan's Seki City - home of the Samurai sword - from a unique steel that contains three different metals. A high carbon core gives them their incredible edge. The beautiful handles are made for us in Sheffield using the Norwegian material Kebony maple (a durable and eco-friendly alternative to tropical hardwood); and the knives, which are intended to last for decades, come with a lifetime guarantee (*but don't put them in the dishwasher!).
 
Phil Howard, chef and co-owner of two Michelin-starred The Square restaurant in London's Mayfair says this about his Tog knife: 'I'm not a knife geek but I do love a truly great knife. My Tog is one such piece of crucial kit.'
 
 
 
Chandelier made from old kitchen utensils by Madeleine Boulesteix
Madeleine Boulesteix
Madeleine is based in South London and South Devon
I’ve been making chandeliers using recycled materials for over 20 years. It started after finding 40 faceted glass drops in some rubbish. I wanted to make myself a chandelier that looked opulent but was made from humble objects. I found metal kitchen items for the structure at car boot sales and scrap yards. They seem nice jaunty objects with more potential so I liberate them from their domestic duties by incorporating them into my chandeliers. I love thrift and the challenge of re-using.
