Multipurpose Wire Basket
The Classic 50 wire basket, with its two handles, is a handy storage basket with a capacity of 50 litres. Thanks to its two handles, even heavy things can easily be transported in the basket. But the stainless steel basket can also be used as storage for potatoes, balls, gloves, laundry, paper waste, garden foliage or magazines. No matter whether indoors or outdoors.
Handmade Wire Baskets from Sweden
Korbo’s handmade wire baskets date back to the early 1920s in Sweden. Back in these days, the baskets were used mainly by fishermen and farmers or by all those who needed reliable carrying and storage possibilities that would resist weather, wind and water.
To date, the baskets are still precisely braided by hand using the same technique. This unique construction consists of one single long piece of wire that is hand-woven without spot welding, giving the baskets particular durability.
High Quality! Stainless Steel
The Korbo baskets are available in two variants of steel - galvanised steel or stainless steel. Both versions are rust-proof.
Galvanising is a process used to prevent corrosion. To this end, a physical barrier of zinc is laid on the surface. For more than 150 years, galvanised steel has been used successfully, giving the wire a nice, matt patina over the years.
The stainless steel however contains nickel and molybdenum, which create a completely rust-proof compound when combined with the steel. Unlike galvanised wire, stainless steel is not only protected against corrosion on the surface, but it is entirely rust-proof. The stainless steel baskets remain shiny no matter the surroundings and conditions they are exposed to.
