We're a mother-daughter partnership with a shared passion for combining traditional basket making and willow growing with innovative and unique design.

 

Jenny Crisp (the mother) has been a basketmaker and willow

grower for nearly 40 years and brings a wealth of experience having devoted her career to mastering traditional willow weaving skills and techniques. Issy Wilkes (the daughter) on the other hand is trained in design for theatre, festivals, and events, bringing a unique and imaginative approach to each project.

 

 Together we’ve created Willow with Roots, a company steeped in heritage, devoted to high-quality crafts(wo)manship and unabashedly pushing the boundaries of what willow can do.
