Cat’s Back Baskets, Malcolm Farrow

Jackdaw Cottage, Knockfarrel, Dingwall, Highland, IV15 9TQ Biography

Malcolm weaves a variety of willow baskets and objects from both locally grown and Somerset willow in the Scottish Highlands. His love of baskets stems from the joy of being able to weave beautiful, useful, and sustainable objects from what might at first appear to be simply a bunch of sticks. He started Cat’s Back Baskets after friends and neighbours were keen to acquire his baskets. The name Cat’s Back Baskets originates from the local name for the ridge behind his house in Knockfarrel.
