A new variation on the classic Korbo baskets, this umbrella bin reflects the same beautiful and timeless utility that characterizes the 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. Not be confused with common ‘stainless steel’ (which despite its name can actually rust), acid-proof steel contains precious metals throughout the alloy which make it truly 100% stainless, remaining shiny and lustrous throughout years of service.
The umbrella stand features a weighted base made from treated cast iron.
