What is The Pouch?
For the AW18 collection we were looking for something that would be a natural next step for baskets. We came across one of the many Japanese furoshiki wrapping techniques that can easily transform a square fabric into a bag by tying it on handles. Since our Rosie basket was already made with round handles this seemed like the perfect match. And this is how The Pouch was born.
What is The Pouch made from?
The Pouch is made from a square fabric and a pair of willow wicker basket handles. You can find the fabric content of each pouch design on their individual product pages.
Who is making The Pouch?
The round handles are made by the same Hungarian artisans who are supplying all our baskets. The fabrics are hemmed by two seamstresses: one of them is based in Hungary and the other one is based in the Netherlands. The final product is tied together in the Netherlands by the founder of FONOTT.
Can I buy the fabric and the handles separately?
You can purchase the square fabrics separately here. We do not sell the handles separately.
How do you tie the fabric on the handles?
Check our tutorial to learn how to tie The Pouch yourself.
What is the size of the basket bag?
You can find the exact size of each basket on the product pages. Slight differences in size and colour might occur due to the manufacturing process.
What are the basket bags made from?
The No.1 and Rosie baskets are made of willow. Willow is a renewable and sustainable crop annually harvested from a stump in withy beds.
The Julie baskets are made of bulrush, a reed-like water plant native to Europe.
Who is making the basket bags?
Each basket is hand-woven in Hungary by a small family business. They have been practicing the art of basket weaving for over 100 years.
Is there an order limit?
Yes, we can process maximum 3 baskets per order. There is a limited stock available and we want to give the chance to order for as many individual customers as possible. In case you want to order more than 3 baskets you can get in touch via email@example.com
How can I pay for my order?
You can pay by:
- Credit Card (Visa, Master Card, American Express)

My order didn't go through but the amount has been taken from my credit card. What now?
