Description: Designed to fit on a step this Grey Wash Willow Wicker Stair Step Basket is a brilliant idea. The addition of the natural lining means nothing will get snagged on the wicker ends inside the basket. How many times do you leave piles of stuff on the stairs to take up later, now you can put it in this basket and carry it all up together. This Grey Wash Willow Wicker Stair Step basket, has a willow frame of vertical posts, which the willow is woven around in a double weave, horizontal design. The high carrying handle makes it easy to lift and carry.
If you like the idea but would prefer a different colour to match your interior design, we also have stair step baskets in chunky Grey Rattan a very contemporary material, and also Buff Willow, Antique Wash Willow, Double Steamed Willow, and Seagrass. We stock a range of Grey Wash Willow Wicker Baskets that match with this Grey Wash Willow Wicker Stair Step Basket, so you can store your shoes, gloves, keys etc too. Purchase this basket without the lining or with a pretty cottage rose lining. The lining folds over the rim of the basket and is tied with bows around the handle.
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. The baskets are dipped in a diluted paint solution to give the contemporary grey finish.
Our baskets are handcrafted from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on all measurements.
