A closer look at Ashcroft

The Ashcroft wastepaper basket has a pale, natural texture that helps it to melt into the background – as you’d want a bin to – but when it is spied, it’s still a lovely thing to look at. Its hand-crafted look adds warmth and character to bedrooms and home offices alike, so it’s not just practical. It fits perfectly under a desk or table.

The materials

Each piece from our Ashcroft collection is tightly hand-woven from sustainable, natural rattan to give it incredible strength that’ll last and last. The measurements we’ve given are a guide, so don’t be surprised if they vary very slightly. It’s all part of the personality of something made by hand.

The finish

After weaving, the rattan is given an off-white enamel wash. It’s not totally uniform – you can still see the natural-coloured rattan peeking through in places. But it’s what makes this piece feel relaxed even though the pale colour is quite contemporary.

  • Width :25cm
  • Depth :25cm
  • Height :31.30cm
  • Weight :1.10kg
  • Bin liner size :20ltr
  • Made From :Handwoven Rattan
  • Shape :Rectangular

Just so you know

Each of these pieces is hand-made from natural materials, so a little variation in shape and colour is to be expected (and loved). Rattan doesn’t like to get wet, so if you’re planning on using Ashcroft in a bathroom, it’s best that the space is well-ventilated.

A standard plastic bin liner will make emptying quick and easy.

Taking care of Ashcroft

Ashcroft needs just a quick weekly dust. Use a clean feather duster, an e-cloth, or a quick hoover using the fine-nozzle attachment.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
