Description: Round Antique Wash Wicker Log Basket made from full buff willow wicker with an antique wash finish. The small basket has been a favourite for some time, and now we have taller and larger matching baskets. The neat small basket is suitable for holding your woodburner logs or kindling, while the tall and large round antique wash wicker log basket will hold lots of logs for your fire. External rope handles for ease of lifting. The baskets have a stitched in hessian lining to keep the dust to a minimum. Imagine a swiss chalet with throws and rugs and a big open fire to snuggle up in front of, these baskets will just complete the picture. To make it look a bit different these baskets have a horizontal frame, with the wicker woven vertically. We stock a large range of log baskets in Wicker, Rattan and Wild Willow.
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 antique wash gives a greyish shabby chic colour.
