Picnic baskets, outdoor dining accessories and picnicware

Our range of willow wicker baskets, made in France, are perfect for embracing outdoor dining this spring and summer. 

 

Although picnics originate from France, with the earliest recorded gatherings dating back to the 1600s, they did not resemble our idea of a pique-nique is today. Picnics were then seen as a gluttonous affair and eaten indoors.

 

In the centuries that followed, the picnic moved to the outdoors and became a favourite subject for French painters. 

 

Later, the British, followed by the Americans, adapted the picnic concept to what it is today, the perfect way to lunch with family and friends in a countryside setting.
