Willow baskets are very versatile. This extra large Wild Willow rectangle Log Basket 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 buff colour. Green Ash Wild Willow is a chunky willow with bark left on, making it very rustic. The description of Green relates to the age of the willow not the colour.
