Large Jute Floor Basket in Natural by Dharma Door.
A practical piece for those who appreciate natural fibres and handcrafted work. Great for storing toys, wood, laundry, newspapers and much more!
Our jute baskets are handwoven by women working within a Fair Trade program in Bangladesh. These talented women combine traditional weaving styles with contemporary designs and natural materials.
The Jute baskets are durable, eco-friendly and the natural colour will work well in most decors.
Material: Natural Jute - a sustainable plant
Base 50cm x 36cm
Height 36cm not including handles.
Variations in dimensions may occur due to the handmade production of this item. Please keep this in mind if selecting this item to fit in joinery or shelving.
The handles on this basket are flexible and can sit upright as per the image or be folded down. Flexible sides make this basket appear larger than its base measurement.
CARE: We often ship our baskets folded flat so they will need a little assistance to find their shape and to stand up properly.
Jute is very pliable so where there are creases, fold them back onto themselves. You might need to do this a few times to the point where the creases almost disappear. We then recommend stuffing your baskets with a blanket or towels for a couple of days so they can find their shape.
This robust basket has been designed to last. The natural charcoal dye will fade in the sun, so be sure to keep it clear of harsh rays.
If you're putting a potted plant in this basket, remember to place a plastic tray underneath the plant pot to collect water.
To clean, we suggest you vacuum your basket or occasionally take it outside on a dry day and shake it to dislodge dirt and dust particles.
Blot water-based spills with kitchen paper or an absorbent cloth as soon as possible. Do not rub stains or spills from your basket as this may spread the stain and loosen the jute fibres. For oil-based or coloured spills, please consult a specialist cleaning professional.
You may choose a protection treatment prior to using your basket. We recommend MicroSeal who offer a DIY protection and cleaning kit suitable for jute fibres.
