Material

This textured basket was 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 and some chunkier ones harvested from two different old scarves. Even the sewing thread used to fix all the parts together is a leftover from a previous project.

Technique

The outer piece was woven on a simple frame loom. The warp is made up from a heavier weight yarn, which makes for an interesting structure to the weave and also makes it not obvious in which direction the piece of fabric was woven. The pattern itself consists of a double gradient. One gradient concerns the secondary colors - cobalt and light blue - that shift and transition, the other gradient concerns the weight of the main, light grey color, which transitions from very chunky to very fine. This makes for an interesting play in structure and saturation of the colors.

Styling

This extra tall basket can be used with or without a folded rim. If you have a large stash of yarns, you might want to use the extra height to fit all of them. This basket is also a great place to store some house slippers for your guests, a collection of stuffed toys or even an extra blanket next to your sofa. The colors and texture fit perfectly with both our Grids and Stacks pillow cases.

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.
