A beautiful and timeless utility characterizes these handmade wire baskets that originate from early 1920s Sweden and are still handcrafted today. They were created for fishermen, gardeners, and anyone else who needed highly durable carrying and storage abilities that would not be compromised by wind, water, or weather. The same hand construction technique has been used for more than 80 years, in which each wire is bent around a loop wire without welding points, making the form self-supportive from every angle. The baskets are available in solid brass, solid copper, or acid-proof steel which should not be confused with common ‘stainless steel’. Acid-proof steel contains precious metals throughout the alloy which make it truly 100% stainless, remaining shiny and lustrous throughout years of service. The acid-proof steel will remain shiny and lustrous while the baskets provide years of service. The solid copper and solid brass baskets will take on a rich patina with use.
