Designed by Diane Carton, the Lunch Pouch is the perfect mini picnic basket. Using a traditional weave, the Lunch Pouch is made to order and measures 25cm x 22cm approx and is handmade, from specially selected willow, grown in County Cork. With eco-leather shoulder straps, the Lunch Pouch is easily carried as a small shopper and is the perfect size for a lunch or picnic, fitting your travel mug or water bottle, as well as your sandwiches and fruit. Reducing the use of plastic in our daily lives helps to protect our planet. And products that use natural materials and are created in small scale production are more eco-friendly. So handmade baskets, made from carbon neutral willow, promote sustainability and have a far more beneficial effect on the environment.

The willow used for your basket is hand grown in Ireland and is 100% carbon neutral.
Lead Time: The Lunch Pouch Basket is made-to-order and takes approx six weeks to produce.
Caring for your Willow Basket: As with all wood, willow is a natural material that is impacted by the environment it’s in, over time light will effect it’s colour and extreme changes in temperature and humidity will cause it to expand and contract. Use a duster, dry cloth or vacuum cleaner to remove dust, use warm soapy water to clean any stains and if mold or mildew forms clean the area with a mild lemon juice and water solution then rinse thoroughly to prevent dis-colouration and dab dry. If your environment is very dry and warm, leaving your basket out in a summer shower once a year will restore moisture content and prevent your basket from drying out and becoming brittle.
