    Whether you're an eco-warrior mummy-to-be creating an environmentally friendly nursery, or are looking for a baby shower gift that's just a little bit different to anyone else, you're in the right place! After all, we're more than just moses baskets. We're Bilia.


    Specifically made for your little tribe.

    Our Bilia Moses Baskets are essential for the very first few months of your newborn's life. With style, sophistication, and an incredible commitment to our environment, they're the new 'must have' for any mummy-to-be. Suitable for newborn sleeping (before a child can roll, push up, or crawl), our newborn baby baskets give little ones a comfortable, stylish, and safe spot to sleep.


    Our philosophy is to provide the most unique, honest, eco friendly and sustainable moses baskets and nursery accessories for your precious newborns to keep close to their hearts; from newborn to adulthood.


    We're more than just moses baskets.

    Our hand made, sustainable, eco-friendly Bilia Moses Baskets are hand woven and dyed with natural, non-toxic products by local tradespeople in Ghana, over around four days, especially for you. Each and every single piece is 'one of a kind', so you'll never find another like the one you own! Our goods are made in Ghana by talented crafts people who are paid exactly what they believe their goods are worth. They set their own prices for their pieces, and are paid that amount. We want to ensure that the community of weavers in Ghana are able to earn a living that they deserve.


    The advantages of a good moses basket.

    Bilia Moses Baskets are intended to offer a beautiful, supervised sleeping space for newborn babies. Newborn's love confined, cosy spaces - they've not long left the womb, and it makes them feel safe and reassured. With a Bilia Moses Basket, you are able to provide an ideal environment for your baby which doesn't take up too much room in your home, is portable so that wherever you go, baby can too, and has a stylish approach to baby furniture that beats bland baby baskets to the curb!


    NOTE: Once a baby can roll, push up or crawl, they are no longer suited to using a moses basket for sleeping purposes.


    However, that's not the end of the road for our baskets - we like to think that a Bilia Moses Basket will be used for lifetimes to come, and they aren't just for babies! Our friends and family have been known to use them as play boats (dry land only please folks!), snuggle baskets for toddlers, crawl level toy storage, shop displays and, and as pampered fur-baby baskets! (lucky pooches!)


    More about the ALBA Bilia Moses Basket.

    This 'ALBA' Bilia Moses Basket forms part of our exclusive, limited edition Jet Collection - named so because of the darkest of the dark, 'almost black' colouration in the baskets.


    Our Jet Collection moses baskets come with an upgraded, custom made, British Safety standard approved, 3cm coconut fibre and wool mattresses. The natural coconut husk pads are surrounded by pure, new wool wadding. The coconut has a complex layered design, which means it has fantastic breathability, and the latex used to bond the coir fibres is naturally hypo-allergenic. The wool is a very soft, natural and ‘snuggly’ alternative to polyester wadding. This mattress contains no arsenic, phosphorus or antimony, and we're proud of that.

      Not only are we very conscious about keeping our eco-friendly and sustainable promise, right through to how our baskets are sent out to you, we want to make sure that it's as easy as possible, once one of our beautiful moses baskets reaches your door, to dispose of the packaging our baby baskets come in instantly. 


      You see, when you receive a Bilia Moses Basket, you'll find it neatly placed inside a simple white polypropylene sack. Inside that sack, you'll find your moses basket, your bespoke, British Safety Standard tested moses basket mattress, a hand written label made from 100% recycled paper, and a card for you and your newborn baby, also made from 100% recycled paper. That's it!


      If your basket has got mis-shapen in the post, it's easy to re-shape it. For more information on how to do this, visit our FAQ page HERE.
