Introducing our stunning collection of willow designs and willow products, all hand made in Somerset, England. Our collection includes traditional wicker and contemporary willow baskets, garden stru

ctures, exclusive willow gift ideas and practical additions for your home.

Based in the Somerset Levels, the heart of the willow industry, PH Coate and Son has been growing 'Withies' and producing wicker baskets and willow products since 1819.

The Somerset Levels is the most important wetland area in the UK. This unique landscape provides the perfect conditions for willow growing. Basket making willow has been grown here for two centuries, and it is now the only area left where it is still cultivated for the production of baskets, furniture, garden items and high quality artists' charcoal.

Bespoke Basket Makers. At Coates English Willow we specialise in producing willow products made to your exact requirements. From your perfect garden chair through to huge models for the film industry - more info.

You can buy a wide range of our products, tools and basket making willow by visiting our online shop.

Please note that we only ship within the UK.

Willow hurdles - We can now offer a bespoke, in-stitu service where we build your hurdle on site ... see our Gallery page for examples of recent commissions.
