Somerton’s 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, even though our baskets are fairly uniform in shape and size, they do vary slightly, giving them 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.
The high sides on this basket means there’s lots of space inside, but it’s not so large that you can’t use it inside a wardrobe or laundry cupboard. It’s also good if you want to keep a few extra blankets close by but not taking up space on the sofa.
