Deep Wicker Rectangle Storage Basket
Length 36 cm x Width 27 cm x Height: 16 cm
Deep Wicker Rectangle Storage Basket. Made from full buff willow wicker, the basket has straight sides and no handles. The willow is woven two strands together giving a pretty horizontal design. These wicker baskets would be ideal for use in an Office or Children’s playroom for storing those little bits and pieces than never seem to have a proper home. Pop them in kitchen cupboards to store sauce packets or spices. So much easier to pull out a basket rather than individual packets.
There is a shortage of storage baskets currently, but if you are looking for a specific size please get in touch and we will do our best to find a basket for you.
Willow baskets are very versatile. These are much hardier than many other natural materials used for basket making, 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.
