Traditional wire baskets: Quality from Sweden
The tradition of Korbo baskets goes back to the early 1920s. At that time, the baskets were mainly used by farmers and fishermen who needed reliable, durable and robust, weatherproof storage and storage facilities for fish, fruit, potatoes and other items.
Since then the baskets are still braided by hand using exactly the same technique. The special construction, in which a single wire is braided by hand without welding points, gives the baskets a unique longevity.
Materials & Surfaces
The Korbo baskets are available in two steel versions - galvanized steel or stainless steel. Both versions are stainless.
Electroplating is a corrosion prevention process in which a physical barrier of zinc is placed over the surface. Galvanized steel has been used successfully for more than 150 years and the wire will gradually acquire a beautiful matt patina.
Stainless steel, on the other hand, contains nickel and molybdenum, which together with the steel form a completely stainless compound. Unlike galvanized wire, stainless steel is not only protected against corrosion on the surface, but is also completely rustproof. The stainless steel baskets remain shiny no matter what the environment or weather.
The baskets are made of solid copper or brass wire and are given an individual patina over time, depending on the area of use, exposed humidity and other influences.
