The baskets were mainly used by farmers and fishermen in those days, who needed a reliable, durable and robust storage for fish, fruit, potatoes and other things, which could withstand wind and weather. The baskets have been made by hand with the exactly the same technique since then. This unique construction consists of one only long piece of wire, which is completely hand-woven without spot welding, giving the baskets a unique durability. Materials and Surfaces
The Korbo baskets are available in two varieties of steel: galvanised or stainless steel. Both varieties are rust-free. Galvanisation is a process used to prevent corrosion in which a physical zinc barrier is laid on the surface. Galvanised steel has been successfully used for over 150 years and the wire will over time acquire a lovely matt patina. Stainless steel on the contrary contains nickel and molybdenum which in combination with the steel makes it completely rust-free. Stainless steel in contrast to galvanised wire is not only protected from corrosion on the surface but is completely rust-free. The stainless steel baskets remain shiny no matter which surroundings and weathering they are exposed to. The solid copper or brass baskets acquire an individual patina over time, according to their use, exposure to humidity and other influences.
