Traditional full Buff Willow Wicker Square Storage Baskets with removable cotton linings. Use for storing clothes, crafts and toys, no chance of catching anything on the wicker ends with the lining in place. These buff willow wicker square storage baskets have a small lip around the top. This is where the weaving has been finished off and is included in the measurements given above. I use these baskets in my kitchen in places where I would have liked drawers and store everything from crisps to plastic carrier bags and boxes.
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.
Our baskets are handcrafted from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on all measurements.
