With a timeless, elegant and stylish design, this wonderful and steady jute basket will help you store magazines, blankets, toys, or anything you want to keep close at hand. It has two strong and sturdy handles. The basket is handmade from start to finish by artisans in remote, rural communities of Bangladesh working in a Fair Trade certified working environment.
Base: 35 x 25cm
You will receive your jute baskets folded. Please help them back into their shape by stuffing them with blankets or towels for a few days. This basket is robust and was made to last. Keep it in dry places. To maintain the original colour be sure to keep it away from direct sunlight. We recommend vacuuming your basket or occasionally shaking it to remove dirt particles. Do not rub stains from your basket as this may spread the stain and loosen the jute fibres. Water-based spills should be blotted with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible.
