Material

These plant baskets were made with a handwoven piece of fabric for the outer and some sturdy canvas, sourced from the secondhand store, for the lining. The outer woven fabric was made from a mix of secondhand yarns, some of which were swapped at a local craft material swap event. Even the sewing thread used to fix all the parts together is leftover from a previous project.

Technique

The long and narrow outer piece was woven on a simple frame loom. The warp is split in two to get the right width and to speed up the work by weaving two different pieces at once. Different patterns may take different amounts of time to be woven, depending on the thickness of the yarn used and the complexity of the pattern. This split method works great with one fast and one intricate pattern, as you can switch inbetween the two for some change. The rest of the basket is assembled using a simple cylindrical pattern on the sewing machine.

Styling

These little textured baskets are the perfect size to be used as some decorative outer pots for your plants. The lining is not waterproof, so make sure to use a small dish below your inner pot to catch any excess water. You can also use these little baskets as neat looking storage around your house, for your current knitting project or as a place for some craft supplies.

Care instructions

All of our items are handmade from various materials and therefore sensitive to harsh washing and cleaning. Please wash all our products by hand in cold water with natural soap. Do not tumble dry or use bleach on any of them. If you feel the need to iron any of your items, use a low temperature and test carefully on one corner before going over the whole item.

Detailed care instructions will be included with your product. In general: Please treat (all) your belongings with as much love and care as they were treated with during their creation.

End-of-life returns

We will always accept your Wasteless Wonders products back at the end of their life, so that we can recycle them in-house and use the materials once more for new products. If items are in a bad condition, they can always become fluffy pillow stuffing as a last resort, so don't hesitate to send anything back. We are striving to operate as circular and as zero waste as possible, that's why we care what happens to our products across their whole life cycle, until the very end.

As a little thank you for your efforts, for every returned item, you'll receive a 10%-off cupon for your next order to make up for some of the shipping costs associated with your return.
