Our GW Scott Baskets
The wicker that is used to make the baskets is grown in Somerset. The wicker used in today's baskets and hampers is still grown by the same family who supplied GW Scott over 150 years ago.
Our GW Scott Ceramics
All of the ceramics are made in Stoke, the original and historical trading town for Ceramics in the UK. All the items are fine bone china. They are made by Caverswall who are Royal Warrant holders and who make everything in their factory in the potteries in Stoke.
Our GW Scott Cutlery
GW Scott works alongside one of the leading cutlery makers in Sheffield, England to make the cutlery for each hamper.
