Seafarer Laundry Basket - Natural

Whether you are styling up your bathroom or arranging your children's toys, the Seafarer Laundry Basket combines purpose with natural style.

This tall woven basket is hand made from start to finish by fair trade artisans in remote, rural communities of Bangladesh. Two strong plaited handles are surprisingly sturdy, thanks to the strength of this much-loved jute fibre.

Brimming with natural warmth, character and our trademark textural touch, The Dharma Door's woven baskets are the perfect way to settle both storage and style.

  • 40cm round x 52cm tall
  • Jute plaits & hand weaving
    Hand stitched with jute thread
  • - We always 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 however the natural charcoal colour will fade in the sun, so be sure to keep it clear of harsh rays.
    -To clean, we suggest you vacuum your basket or occasionally take it outside on a dry day and shake or beat it to dislodge dirt 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.
