Arbroath Rectangular Jute Basket, Medium

A closer look at Arbroath

Slouchy but sturdy jute baskets with wrap-around plaited handles. Each one is made by hand in Bangladesh – an area with a strong tradition of weaving – so will vary a little in terms of size and shape, as well as colour thanks to the natural jute. Choose from three sizes of soft rectangular baskets: a small, tabletop design, and medium and large sizes suitable for sitting on the floor.

The material

Jute is a plant very similar to linen: it’s quick growing and doesn’t need chemical fertilisers or pesticides, making it very sustainable. Like linen, the fibres are also extracted from the stems using a natural process called ‘retting’, where the stems are left to break down in water. Once stripped away, the fibres are then spun into cord before being woven. As it’s entirely natural, jute is also biodegradable.     

Design detail

Our Arbroath baskets all have useful carry handles made from plaited jute cord. They wrap right around the base of the basket, making them incredibly strong and secure, as well as being a character-adding design detail and a traditional feature of jute baskets woven in Bangladesh.

In use

There are lots of different ways you could use these baskets – their shape makes them very versatile. The smallest, for instance, would make an attractive holder for loo rolls or for organising smaller items, like facecloths and pillowcases, in a linen cupboard. The medium size would be great in a washstand for bottles, or beside a fire for kindling. While the largest is perfectly sized for magazines or folded blankets.

Taking care of Arbroath

Simply shake your basket outside to remove any dust, or use a vacuum with a soft bristle attachment. Try not to get Arbroath wet.

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.
