Sweet Dream Baskets
Sweet Dream Baskets is based in Tokyo, Japan.
We meticulously knit baskets for pets and to use for daily storage, with crochet hooks, patterns and %100 upcycled material. We’re focused on creating a unique product and a great purchasing experience for you!
We are easy to communicate with, punctual in our shipping, and will follow-up up after our delivery.
As I started crocheting a basket for myself, my cats Pusheen and Frost were sitting in it. After that basket, I kept making one more and one more... They just loved my baskets!
I know by experience that these are real Sweet Dream Baskets!
We are the only brand worldwide using %100 re-cycled t-shirt yarn to knit baskets for pets.
Our technique and patterns are all original. We were inspired by ancient tapestry patterns, as well as modern styles and symbols.
