Antique Wash Willow Wicker Round Toilet Roll Basket
Dimensions: Diameter 18 cm x Height 40 cm (43 cm incl. handle)
Description: Antique Wash Willow Wicker Round Toilet Roll Basket. Matching our narrow rectangle basket, this Antique Wash Willow Wicker Round Toilet Roll Basket is tall enough to store three toilet rolls out of sight, with a lid to cover the top. Made from full buff willow wicker with an antique wash. The removable lid has a lip which sits inside the top of the basket, so it won’t slip off, and to make it easier to lift off the lid also has a loop handle. Use in the hallway to store your small umbrellas, as a small waste paper bin or to store kindling beside your fire. This round basket is going to have lots of uses around the home not just in the toilet or cloakroom.
At Choice Baskets we stock a selection of antique wash baskets, from stair to garden and craft to logs. Once you’ve decided on the colour, the next decision is the style. We are also able to source storage baskets in the same antique wash finish.
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. The antique wash gives a brown/grey shabby chic colour.
