Wicker Storage Basket made from full buff willow wicker, in a traditional design. The wicker storage basket have integral handles at either end on the short width sides. The willow frame and wooden posts in each corner, make these wicker storage basket extremely strong. The wicker storage baskets have been part of our range for a number of years and are very popular for anything from kitchen/vegetable storage, through to Log Baskets and for use as drawers in a wardrobe.
Willow baskets are very versatile. These are much hardier than many other materials used for making 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 handcrafted from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on all measurements.
