The creation of each Belleek Basket tells us a story about the amazing art of Belleek basket weaving. The Basket and flower making process was first introduced to Belleek by William Henshall who came to Belleek in the late 1860’s. Over the next forty years he developed the craft and trained the local craftsmen in the necessary skills. These skills have been passed down through the generations to the present day, where Baskets are still handcrafted using the skills developed over the previous 160 years.
Belleek’s woven baskets have become a truly unique and special part of our product selection and are the perfect Irish handcrafted gift for any occasion.
