Blame it on Dolce & Gabanna, the pom pom dress and Sicilian basket or the everlasting bohemian trend but pom poms are big news this spring and this season you can have your pick of the bunch. Whether it’s a pom pom basket, a pom pom bag or clutch, heels adorned with pom poms, a pom pom throw or garland for simple decoration, they are everywhere.
If like me you are pom pom or woven basket obsessed, you will also like a like my previous post Dreamweaver. I have also developed more than an obsession with the Banjara bags, vintage clutches made from recycled materials by craftspeople in Indian tribes as shown in the main picture by Nana & Jules.
Here’s my pick of the pom poms, this summer’s hottest accessory. Pom Poms for the little ones coming soon.

Having just returned from Mallorca, not only was it beautiful baking hot sunshine but also Spanish woven basket heaven! I aways manage to return form Spain or France with a woven basket of some sort but this time there was so many on offer. Baskets to use as beach bags, sequin baskets, dip-dyed, pom pom baskets or those to use for storage, there seem to be baskets to suit all. The purchase this year was a lovely colourful Moroccan pom pom basket all for the bargain price of £13. You can find a similar larger basket to this one below at newly launched edit58 who have a variety of pom pom baskets including the Eliza Gran baskets, also available in black with a hint of colour.

With so many on offer, I compiled my pick of the best whilst the summer lasts to use as beach bags and a variety of different baskets to use in the home.

You could also think of creating a wall display with a number of woven baskets but you must use similar looking baskets and those of the similar size to make an impact.
