Product Description

The 'Laundry Basket' or 'Dirty Linen Basket' has a teak frame with woven cane on five sides. The top flap opens with the help of a brass latch and hinges.

Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of four wood finishes: Natural Teak, Dark Stain and Z4 Walnut.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of sealer.

For the Z4 Walnut finish, a proprietary one, the wood is hand-stained with a water-based walnut stain and then a coat of sealer is hand-applied.

Please note, each batch of teak is unique and actual shade may vary a little from the reference image.
