What is a Gootchi Basket?

Home of the Original Gootchi Baskets and the BYO Gootchi - (Bring your own bottle) Gootchi carriers.

Working with mixed media and supporting local artisans, we use artisanal hand woven seagrass baskets from Zimbabwe and Reed baskets from Malawi and embellished them with passementerie*, African mud-cloth and local crafts to create  'Afri-Boho-Chic' items in a fun and exciting way! Our range of products consists Tote style handbags, BYO carriers (bring your own bottle carriers) home decor and the 'von Gootchi' range (a bag with a removable scarf)

What is Passementerie*? 

It's what gives each of our Gootchi Baskets and BYO Gootchi's their own custom design. It's where tassels and trims are the star of the show. This art can enrich any scheme and make it look so much more fabulous! We hope that you enjoy 'embellishing' your daily outings with these gorgeous accessories.

Each Gootchi basket and BYO Gootchi is custom embellished and no 2 are the same! If a particular item is out of stock, and you would like that design, send us a message, and we will do our best to create something similar. 

Some Gootchi Baskets are on consignment in various stores in Cape Town - please call to check on availability first before placing your on-line order: +27 (60)476-5633. We strive to keep the website's inventory updated on a regular basis.

*Due to the delicate nature of some of the silk passementerie used - it is best to use these baskets for special occasions*

How Gootchi Baskets got it's name...

Gootchi Baskets

TIKKI TIKKI TEMBO NO SO REMBO OO MA COOTCHI GAMMA GAMMA GOOTCHI...

Why on earth would this rather unusual rhyme pop back in my head and jolt me out of my sleep?

Coming back home to live in South Africa after living abroad for 37 years, has bought back a flood of wonderful childhood memories.

This was a story that was read to me in my childhood years growing up in Kenya. Believe it not, the entire rhyme was the full name of a small Chinese boy, slightly modified from the original by the way I remembered it from my childhood. Interestingly, the name means:

'the most wonderful thing in the whole wide world'.

When creating each of my Gootchi baskets, it brings me into a happy zone where I experience the most wonderful feeling in the whole wide world! I love working with mixed media and when I saw these baskets, I knew that had found my niche to work with them along with incorporating other African materials and local crafts into the design.

In keeping with the moral of the original story i.e. to keep things short - I chose the cute fun name Gootchi, as this best describes the nature of these fun and lively baskets. It also presents a rather interesting play on the more famous fashion brand. 

Proudly presenting the Original Gootchi Basket Collection.

Here's to childhood memories and new creations...

que sera sera!
