Our baskets are made of a strong and flexible material called straw (or elephant grass) which will allow you to use it as much as you want and will cover all your needs. Although, cause it’s natural nature we strongly recommend to avoid humidity, direct sunlight and dust.
Take note that because of the use of the natural dyes or plant-based dyes process it can happen that with time the Colors of it become less bright & saturated.
Also, the baskets that come with a removable cloth on the handle are for a resistance reason. Although we also like the basket by itself without any other material than its own, we advise using the cloth if the basket it’s gonna be used regularly to keep the handle strength and avoid scratches between them.
* BASKET ORDERS NOTE: In an effort to keep shipping costs more affordable, we ship our baskets flattened. This does not hurt the baskets in any way as they are very durable and flexible. Along with your package, you will find a document titled ‘How to wet your basket.’ This will provide you step by step instructions to easily reshape your basket in minutes. Watch video here.
We advise using a normal brush to clean your basket and if desired to rewet it to shape it.
