Our Story

We founded Eastward & Co in 2000.  

Paul had been working in the Far East for many years before this, and on trips there we were constantly inspired by the craftmanship of the local people and the wonderful variety of products available.  

For the last 20 years we have been trading with suppliers mainly in Indonesia and The Philippines and importing indoor and outdoor furniture, home accessories and basketware for wholesale and retail customers.  We have developed strong links and excellent relationships with the factories that we work with, most of whom we have known since we started.

We particularly love baskets - you can never have enough!  Every room in the house seems to have a need for a useful, attractive basket!

Our basket collection is hand picked by us with our customer in mind.  We visit the factories ourselves to discuss designs and make our selections. Our aim is that our baskets are both beautiful and practical and that we have sizes and designs that will suit all types of homes.  

From our base in Suffolk we will send your basket to you.  We hope that you love it as much as much as we do!
