Care instructions 

Our fresh and fabulous basket will be flat packed and will need some life breathed into it. The good news is that the care instructions are simple.

Soak the basket.This can be done in the sink, bath or under the shower.Work the reed.

The reed becomes malleable when soaked.

 Work them gently and start forming the basket into the shape you desire.

We find that a round and symmetrical finish looks the best.

Leave it to dry.

Once you’re happy with the shape simply leave it to dry, preferably somewhere with decent drainage so that water doesn’t pool underneath (which will slow down the drying process).
