Antique Wash Wicker Two Bottle Carrying Basket
Length 26 cm x Width 15 cm x Height 37 cm
Antique wash wicker two bottle carrying basket, made from full buff willow wicker with an antique wash finish. The basket has a cooler lining, divided for 2 bottles, faux leather hinges and clasp, and a bottle opener in the pocket on the front. The adjustable canvas strap is long enough to carry over your shoulder. A lovely gift for people that likes walking and wine.
Rather than putting 2 bottles in the basket, you could put one bottle and a couple of small wine glasses instead.
We have plenty of other bottle carriers from simple 2 bottle designs to larger 12 bottle baskets, and also some celebration baskets which have 6 or 12 glasses included.
Our range of Antique wash gift baskets include single bottle baskets with champagne or shot glasses included, a garden tool basket, a barbecue tool basket, and a beautiful chiller basket with matching picnic blanket.
Willow baskets are very versatile. These are much hardier and can be used outside as they will survive in all weathers. Usually a stronger weave, they are very sturdy and solid. Grown in fields and by river banks as willow, the branches are stripped of their outer layer and usually treated before weaving. The end product is well suited to carrying weight although the baskets themselves are lightweight.
Buff Willow is cropped mainly in November, but sometimes not until December. It is the most popular and is obtained by boiling the willows to release the natural colourant tannin from the bark into the wood. The bark is then stripped from the willow revealing the characteristic golden colour. The antique wash gives a grey/brown shabby chic colour.
Our baskets are handcrafted from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on all measurements
