Willow wicker storage basket natural lining available in four sizes; large, medium, small and x-small. These baskets are made from full buff willow wicker. The baskets have faux leather handles attached through the wicker on the short sides, and a removable natural lining. Use the willow wicker storage basket for storing clothes, crafts and toys, no chance of catching anything on the wicker ends with the lining in place. Do you have shelves in your cupboard or wardrobe, use the willow wicker storage basket as a drawer. Makes it easier to get to the things at the back.
These are the measurements of the actual basket, the handles would add another 2 cm to the length of the basket and also protrude above the willow by about 2 cm. They are attached through the weave, are quite soft, and can be removed if needed. I have known customers remove the handle at the back of the basket to make it fit a 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.
