Our handmade sisal baskets are extremely strong and durable. However, care should be taken when exposing your basket to full sunlight for long periods of time, as this can sometimes cause the colours to fade. Sisal is a natural product, and if it remains damp for a long period it can go mouldy. Thus, whilst a splash of water will not damage these baskets, drying your basket out if it is made wet is recommended.
If you use your basket as a planter, lining it with a dish/plate before you place the pot inside is advisable.
