It all started 40 years ago, when Ine van Dam walked into Nico van Balveren’s bike shop. She was looking for a wicker basket for her bicycle. Nico developed the basket and made Ine very happy with it. And, most importantly, the basket allowed her to enjoy her bike rides even more. Today BASIL® has a huge variety of products…and since 2018 there is even a bag for the Shopper®
