There’s no denying that a wood burning stove brings more than just warmth to a room. The dancing flames provide a beautiful glow that you can’t get from any light fitting and the fire companion set and log basket add a touch of elegance usually found in stately homes. We believe that our bespoke wicker log baskets are an asset to any room. 

Our log baskets are handmade in Edinburgh by local basket weaver, Anna Leibmann. Anna is an expert in willow basket weaving and regularly runs training courses throughout Scotland to teach other people the ancient art. We particularly love that Anna grows a large percentage of the willow that she uses in her own garden. This means that our wicker log baskets are handmade, beautiful and sustainable.

At Kingdom Firewood we believe strongly in supporting other local businesses. That is one of the reasons why we chose to find a local basket maker to make our bespoke handmade wicker log baskets. We are also acutely aware of our carbon footprint and try to make sure that all our products are sourced locally thus helping to reduce  their carbon footprint.

The process of making a bespoke wicker log basket is quite lengthy. Firstly Anna has to cut and soak the willow for 2-3 weeks. This soaking process allows the willow to become  more pliable and stops it from snapping when it is bent into shape. The basket then has to be tightly weaved into shape. All our log baskets come with a foot border and handles. The foot border is an inch deep and lifts the basket off the ground. This helps to protect the basket and keep the bottom clean, it also helps to prolong the life of the basket considerably. The handles add an additional 9cm of height to the basket.

Each one of our bespoke wicker log baskets are made to order which makes each piece totally unique. The colour variation of the willows will be different in each basket and each basket is expected to last around 10 years. Our premium kiln dried hardwood logs fit perfectly in the log baskets . We estimate that each log basket holds around 1 winter evenings worth of firewood, depending on the size of your stove. The cost of a log basket is £120 and takes averagely 4-6 weeks to arrive. We can deliver the log baskets with an order of firewood or as a separate item although delivery charges will apply when bought without firewood.

  • Fantastic quick service and great wood too. We've had 2 bags since before Christmas and just now need to order our 3rd. This is our only form of heating as we don't have central heating.Diane - February 2018
  • Great quality wood, high heat output, great service and very friendly.Mark - January 2019
  • Placed our first order today and promptly received delivery today too. Really pleasant and chatty and very accommodating to where the logs needed to go. The logs are a good size and burn well with a good heat output too. Definitely will order again when supply is running low!Sharon - February 2018
  • We wanted to try a local business instead of an online supplier and we have not been disappointed! The level of service that we received from the initial phone call to delivery was fantastic. Our wood store is at the back of our house, down a narrow gravelled lane which was not a problem and made stacking the logs a lot easier. Thank you Kingdom Firewood we will be back!Mike - February 2019
