Basketmakers Company

Established by an Order of the Court at Aldermen on 22 September 1569, a Royal Charter being granted in 1937. Today it supports the trade in this country and helps to foster links with the craft across the world.

The history page of the Basketmakers website is surprisingly racy, with ""illegal imports of baskets" and riots on "Evil May Day" while their coat of arms is charming with 3 baskets on the shield and a domestic scene for the crest showing parents around a basketware cot.
