Shop Announcement:

Thank you everyone for your wonderful support. Ecolistic Artworks is open but, all orders may take longer to make and ship out (due to supporting my children who are being home schooled at the moment) I will still only be shipping out once a week. I still have a lovely supply of natural materials in stock to work with, mostly from our woodland where I live and work, here in South West Wales. Summer is here and I will be updating changes in our woodland on Ecolistic Artworks facebook and instagram pages so, we can all share this magical woodland as the season's change. Please feel free to message me I aim to reply within 24 hours. Wishing you all stay well and stay safe through these unpredictable times.

Love this


The oval straw basket is a made using a traditional process called Lippi Work. It is a process that has been used for centuries and is used to create traditional bee hives know as Bee Skeps. Please see Ecolistic Artworks bee hive listings for examples.

The basket priced in this listing is approx 33 cms or 13 inches. However this lovely little basket design is Made to Order and can be made in a variety of sizes.
Also, it can be customized to order. Please feel free to message me further information for prices etc.


Interesting fact! The Heads of the fine April Bearded Wheat used to make this charming little bread basket would have been used to make bread. So no waste!

After making Bee Skeps or, traditional straw hives from the coiled straw ( lippi work) for years I was asked to amke a number of the traditional oval baskets. Finally here now as a listing. Visit Ecolistic Artworks shop to see the traditional Straw Bee Hive or, Skeps.
