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.
