– If your basket gets squashed, don’t panic, you can remould it by stuffing with towels or pot of a similar shape.
– If using your basket as a plant pot, be sure to either line it with a thick plastic or keep your plant in a smaller plastic pot on a saucer.
– Keep your basket dry, they’re all made from natural materials so will deteriorate it they get damp.
– Keep away from direct sunlight to keep the colours bright. Dyed sisal will fade if exposed to strong sunlight, although this effect can give the basket a more rustic look.
