What can be more summery than a sun-bleached beach basket? The wicker basket trend is huge this year so why not get the little ones in on the act?
For days out at the beach or summer picnics a woven basket is just the thing. And even better when it comes with the wonderful Rae Feather’s trims and tassels. If you are looking for beach themed gift ideas or a boho fashion treat, the UK based designer has teamed up with beachwear brand Sunuva for a gorgeous personalised children’s beach basket tote bag (and there’s a large one too if you want to treat yourself!).
Sunuva was founded by Emily Cohen and Sabrina Naggar, who were first introduced to each other by their children while on holiday in 2007. The duo set-out to establish a stylish childrenswear brand after discovering their mutual love of travel, family life and frustration at the lack of stylish UV swimwear available for kids. Sunuva is now a globally recognised British brand stocked in Harrods, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Barney’s New York, as well as independent boutiques and luxury resorts around the world.
Rae Feather are famed for their monogrammed woven wicker basket designs, bags and clutches, which quickly became a fashion wardrobe staple. Working with expert artisans, Rae Feather pieces blend time-honoured craft skills with a contemporary design aesthetic; think pom-poms, tassels and bold colour motifs on pieces designed to be cherished for a lifetime. The brand’s bespoke monogrammed initials, hand painted by a team of in-house artists, has become a brand signature flourish.
Sunuva and Rae Feather were bought together after discovering their similar design aesthetic, and common interests in travel, colour and design. The Sunuva x Rae Feather baskets have been made in a children’s size, with fabulous neon trims, bells and tassels sourced from Sunuva’s latest adventure to Delhi. The baskets are hand made in England from 100% palm woven straw. You can personalise your basket with Rae Feather’s signature hand painted monogramming, creating a gorgeous unique summer gift for kids.
The Sunuva X Rae Feather beach basket is available now from £60. See www.raefeather.com. @RaeFeather
