Bespoke Willow Baskets Woven

Based in the Somerset Levels, the heart of the willow industry, PH Coate & Son has been growing 'Withies' and producing wicker baskets and willow products for prop hire since 1819. Now, we bring that trade to the film and TV industry.

We specialise in producing willow products made to your exact requirements, all of which are handmade in Somerset, England. Our collection includes traditional and contemporary willow baskets, garden structures and wicker models, some of which have been featured in Sweeney Todd, War Horse and Clash of the Titans.
