Four Section Round Condiment Basket – Buff or Washed
Diameter 19 cm x Height 6 cm, 22.5 cm incl. handle
This 4 section Round Condiment Basket, is is made from full buff willow and is also available in the washed finish. Being shallower than the cutlery baskets, this basket would be great for sauce sachets, condiments, or perhaps as a desk tidy. The high carrying handle makes the basket easier to lift and carry when full.
We also stock this basket a bit deeper to hold cutlery, and an oval 4 and 6 section basket in the buff and washed wicker finishes. Another basket Exclusive to Choice Baskets. If you prefer seagrass we have a square basket with either 2 or 4 sections, a narrow basket with 2 sections, and a longer basket with 6 sections. Make some lovely gift baskets with these round condiment basket, by filling each section with something different: chocolates, sweets, bath bombs, or even make small planters, with a different herb or a few seeds planted in each section. Don’t forget to line with plastic first.
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 washed finish is created by dipping the basket in a weak paint solution and leaving it to dry.
