Specializing in the finesse of hand crafted wicker willow, Gousia willow is an initiative by a 95 year old artisan who brought the craft of basketry to a pinnacle of glory. His craftsmanship is now carried forward by his sons who make utlities, accessories and more out of the craft which emanates earthiness.
