Laundry Basket


The pattern for this laundry basket is a copy of a friend’s 40 year old basket from The Huntingdon Blind School which I remade last year and fell in love with.  This strong, sturdy basket is lightweight and durable and an attractive alternative to plastic. Long lasting, so expect to still be using this basket in 20 years time ! Made from buff willows grown on the Somerset Levels. Perfect for a large load of wet washing . The strong handles mean the basket can be hung in a laundry, handles can be replaced if they wear out. Woven with the majority of cut off ends of willow on the outside of the basket to reduce snagging your laundry.

63cm long x 47cm wide x  33 cm high. (including handles)
