Description: Lights Darks Laundry Chest Four Shallow Storage Baskets, exactly as it says, a large buff willow wicker Laundry Chest with a willow divider, and removable natural lining. The Basket has the word Laundry stamped on the front, and Light/Dark stamped inside the lid, inline with the two sections. The lid is hinged with faux leather hinges, that have velcro fastenings. Also included are four shallow wicker storage baskets, with removable natural linings. Separate your washing as you go along, makes it much easier to get a load together for the washing machine. Use the storage baskets in the bathroom, utility or laundry, for storing washing detergents, toilet rolls or small items of clothing like socks. Another option with the shallow baskets is to use one for each member of the household (as long as there is no more than 4). Sort the clean washing into the baskets and leave for them to put away.
Willow baskets are very versatile. These are much hardier than many materials used for baskets, 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.
