Wicker Bottle Basket – 12 Sections
Length 47 cm x Width 35.5 cm x Height 22 cm (35 cm inc handle)
Full Buff Willow wicker bottle basket with 12 sections and a high carrying handle. This basket could sit in the boot of your car to store your supermarket or wine shop bottles. Could also be used to hold bottles for re-cycling. The perfect gift for a wine connoisseur, even if you don’t put any bottles in it. We stock these baskets for 2 bottles, 4 bottles and 6 bottles, and also some really nice bottle baskets that have glasses as well in 6 glasses and 12 glasses. As part of our Grey Rattan range we now stock a 4 bottle basket, 6 bottle basket and a picnic basket with spaces for 4 bottles. Taking children to the park or lido for the day, pop a drinks bottle in each section, then they know where their drinks are and they don’t get mixed up. A brilliant addition to your craft room, use for knitting needles, crochet hooks and paint brushes. If you are a quilter you could keep different colour fabrics in each space.
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.
Our baskets are handcrafted from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on all measurements
