The Cyntell – Traditional Welsh Framed Basket


Out of stock


Welsh Cyntell Basket – 20″ diameter

Used for general agricultural purposes, the Cyntell is a traditional Welsh framed basket and would have been used to gather crops, carry animal feed and possibly sleep a young baby!

Today they are perfect as blanket baskets, toy baskets or for hanging out the washing.

Woven around a solid willow hoop and split willow ribs, our Cyntell’s are a real heirloom basket and statement piece.

I was taught by Les Llewellyn, who in turn was taught by DJ Davies, the last person in Wales with the skills to weave the Cyntell.

Woven with a combination of our Carmarthenshire willow and willow sourced from Somerset

Diameter approx. 20″/50cm

Depth approx. 10″/25cm

Other designs/colours can be made to order.

The Cyntell can also be offered as a 2/3-day workshop.  Please enquire at
