In the early seventies the former owner Nico van Balveren, at the time still a bicycle retailer, started with the development and production of various models of bicycle baskets. In 1976 Nico established ‘N. van Balveren Riet Import-Export’. After a few years the name of the company was changed into the brand name BASIL. The word ‘Basil’ is a contraction of ‘van Balveren’and ‘SILvolde’ (Silvolde is the original domicile). Since 2001 the Basil bike bags has been taken over by Marthijn van Balveren, son of Nico.
