Caring For Your Bag
WETTING YOUR BASKET
When your basket arrives it may require reshaping. (They travel a long ways and may be “jet lagged”!)
Start the process by wetting your basket. You can fully immerse it or give it a quick shower but try to protect the leather handle from getting too wet. Hot, cold or warm water will work - temperature is not a factor.
RESHAPING YOUR BASKET
For Round and pot baskets, push the centre out. The baskets are tougher than they look, so don't be afraid to use a little force! Gloves aren't essential but can help protect your hands while you do this.
Work out any wrinkles in your basket with your hands then shake out the extra water. Once your happy with the shape, find a place for it to fully dry.
MAINTAINING YOUR BASKET
Because they are made from natural fibres, your basket may weather, age and subtly change shape over time.
You can repeat the reshaping process at any time should you wish. Dipping it once or twice a year will also help maintain deeper colours, which tend to fade as the baskets mature.
