About Violet Agnes


Violet Agnes is a small business originally set up by two working mothers who fell in love with the baskets and bags in a French market and traced them back to Madagascar.  We then found that they made hats as well!  

Violet Agnes is actually the name of one of our grandmothers and I think it sums us up very well – we are classic with a streak of colour!  We love the vibrant colours of all our straw bags, baskets and hats – they are big, bold and beautiful – a bit like us!

The baskets, bags, and hats we import from Madagascar are sourced from wholesalers who support the use of eco friendly, natural and sustainable materials.  When you buy a Violet Agnes product,  as well as getting a beautiful, one off item, you are directly contributing to both humanitarian and environmental projects in Madagascar, one of the poorest countries in the world.

So come on in and have a look at what we have to offer.  You will not be disappointed and I am on hand to help with any queries you may have  or order a particular item that is currently out of stock.  Or you can come along and meet us face to face at one of our many fairs – check out the calendar for our  next outing.  I look forward to meeting you either in cyber space or face to face!
