Wicker Laundry Chest Basket, 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, in line with the two sections. The lid is hinged with faux leather hinges, that have velcro fastenings.
Make sorting your washing easier, (or train others!), with the two sections named Light or Dark, who could get it wrong? Ok daft question, there will always be someone, but we can try! And if there is an odd dark item in the light section, it will be easily seen and can be removed before putting in the machine.
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.
Our baskets are hand made from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on measurements
