Each basket is unique in a way.

  • Always aim to keep your basket dry. These baskets can go in the bathroom, but just ensure that it is not by the bath or the shower as they can get damp due to its natural materials.

    Using it as a planter basket -  Ensure that you place a saucer or a plastic at the bottom of the basket before inserting your plant pot as water can damage your basket.

    If it get’s wet, ensure you dry it as soon as possible on a radiator or under the sun for a day

    Try to keep it away from direct sunlight as this may deteriorate the basket colours over the time though this may give a rustic look to your basket.
