Small Wicker Shelf Basket Lined
Length 24 cm x Width 17 cm x Height 12 cm
Small Wicker Shelf Basket in either full buff willow or grey wash willow. These baskets have a removable natural lining. This small wicker shelf basket is just perfect for a window ledge or narrow shelf. Rather than having elastic at the corners to keep the lining in place, the lining of this basket has a cute little bow on one of the long edges.
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 baskets are then washed with grey for a very natural yet contemporary look.
