A closer look at Somerton

This is the basket we designed to fit perfectly inside the cubby holes in our laundry room cabinets. Add it in to functional spaces like this if you feel you need to break up timber cabinetry and give the room a softer, less utilitarian look. With its classic woven rattan texture, Somerton has the most traditional, country feel of our basket collections.

Materials

Somerton is made from kubu – a type of natural rattan that’s strong, smooth and sustainable. It has a grey-brown colour that’s subtle and fits easily into any interior. Because it’s a natural material, this colour will vary within each piece, giving them even more texture.

In the making

It’s not always possible to make things by hand, but when it comes to basket-weaving, that’s really the only way to do it. It means that our baskets are perfectly imperfect when it comes to shape and size, with much more character than if a machine made them.

Design is in the detail

The handles in this basket are woven in as a sturdy part of the structure, so you can pick it up without worrying. And so it sits neatly wherever you place it, with as few wobbles as possible, we’ve made the bottom as flat as we can.

In use

Because this basket is generously-sized you can use it in a laundry room to store duvet covers and sheets, to tuck away folded shirts before they’re ironed, or in pairs to separate your darks and lights. It also works just as well in kitchens for holding table linens.

Just so you know

As durable as this basket is, it won’t be happy living outside.

Taking care of Somerton

Somerton couldn’t be easier to keep clean – all you need to do is wipe it down with a dry e-cloth if it gets dusty or spilt on. It’s not keen on water, so if it does get wet just make sure you dry it well. And if you’re keeping it in the bathroom, give it a chance to dry out.

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

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. We offer a free returns service on accessories and all the details on what you need to do will be on your delivery note. Just make sure you keep hold of the packaging.
