When you order a handmade commission basket from Nu4u, you’re in for a pleasant surprise.
A handmade commission basket from us is a one off piece of functional art.
We make baskets that are functional, creative and artistic because we believe each piece of work we create needs to be unusual and stand out from the crowd.
Each commission can easily incorporate a range of themes, colors, materials and more which therefore makes your piece personal. We especially like working with clients to create commissioned pieces which are unique, one off statements.
What do I get in my commission?
Each commission begins with a conversation and connection between us and you. How this happens depends on a range of things, so we use a variety of methods to connect, including:
- phone calls
- video link ups
- face to face meetings [ we like meeting over coffee to have a chat ]
- visit to your home
- you can visit us in our studio
Our conversations include a range of topics to help us understand what you’re looking for. Have you got a particular style of decor already? Where will your basket live and do you have a theme or message you’d like to finally incorporate?
We also discuss the range of materials available to us and if you have something personal you’d like us to use and incorporate into your piece.
Want to connect with us? We look forward to talking, so please click on the link below to start our chat.
To create your commissioned piece we use a selection of materials.
Using natural materials results in some distinctive and unique pieces. We use anything at hand, including bamboo, rose vine, shells, feathers, branches, herbs, flax, palm inflorescence or anything which lends itself to being woven or stitched.
These may include recycled rope, op shopped jewellery, clothing, wire, fishing line, marine plastics, marine debris and also anything else we can get out hands on!
Cost will vary depending on size and dimensions, weight, materials used and postage, all of which we cover in our conversations.
To protect your piece, we sometimes give it a thin coating of fabric protection because it’s made from recycled materials. Please ensure your specially commissioned piece lives inside or in a sheltered place
