Dedicated to keeping traditional crafts alive and ensuring employment within the Taiwanese artisan community, this fairtrade piece is crafted with an octagonal or diagonal weaving pattern from triangle rush grass and natural copper. Due to the handmade nature of this wonderful design, each piece is truly one-of-a-kind and will feature subtle differences.
Made in Taiwan. Shallow copper rim basket featuring diagonal or octagonal weaving pattern.
Details: 11 centimeters (D) x 5 or 7 centimeters (H). Each piece is handmade, resulting in subtle differences. Materials: Triangle rush grass and natural copper (develops natural patina over time).
Care: Rush grass and natural copper are sensitive to humidity and moisture, so we don't recommend to use our rush basket in the bathroom or other humid space. Rush Grass: Do not wash in water. Triangle rush is very absorbent, excess water can lead to mould. Avoid excessive exposure to humid environments. To clean or remove stains, simply use a clean damp cloth to wipe the surface then leave it to dry in a warm place. When exposed to direct sunlight the grass will yield an aromatic quality whilst maintaining the colour of the product. Exposure to strong sunlight will dry the rush grass and make it brittle. Avoiding folding or bending the product after being exposed to sunlight for long periods of time. Before storing wipe the basket with a clean damp cloth and leave it to dry. After drying place it carefully in an airtight bag. Copper: Remove the rim from the basket before cleaning. Clean it with a mixture of lemon juice and salt gently. Rinse in with warm water and dry immediately and completely with a clean towel. Make sure it's completely dry before placing it back on the rush grass basket. You can also apply commercial copper polish cream to make it tarnish slower.
