What Makes A Good Retail Display?
If you need a few pointers on how to make an impact on your customers, read on. For more top tips, check out our Retail Display Guides.
1. Incorporate Natural Materials
Using wicker display baskets and wooden display crates made from 100% natural materials helps create a shopping environment that customers love. They help to create a fresh, organic in-store atmosphere that engages shoppers and reinforces your brand. The products won't sell themselves, you always need to draw customers in.
2. Create Tactile Displays
Remember the 'rule of three'. Asymmetrical displays have a bigger impact than symmetrical setups. Combine small and large display baskets with crates to offset balance and add dimension to your displays. Introducing natural textures such as wood and wicker also encourages interaction and improves customer engagement.
3. Use Creative Signage
You've spent time creating a wonderful display, don't undo all your hard work with poor signage or indecipherable messaging. Use clear signage and point-of-sale that guides customers effectively. Display prices and labels on A-boards, use mini chalkboards to highlight offers, and use ticket holders to give snippets of info.

To help give you some inspiration we’ve brought a range of baskets together that we’ve seen used successfully in retail displays. Some, like our baguette baskets, bread basket and display baskets were designed with a specific purpose in mind; others have just been used by our customers in ways we never expected.
Plastic wicker baskets (aka polywicker) are a relatively new innovation designed for specific retail products and environments. They are still hand-woven and carefully finished in the traditional way but they use a polymer based material in place of natural wicker.
The advantages of polywicker are that it can be used to display unwrapped and perishable food; it’s chiller and dishwasher safe. Because it’s so hygienic we also use it for products such as cutlery holders.
