Rattan Laundry Basket

$109.00 Sale Save

Fair trade crafted rattan laundry basket.

  • Sturdy basket with dual handles
  • Beautiful earthy grey rattan
  • Empowering artisans

Afterpay is available in checkout.

We cannot keep up with the demand for these sturdy, beautiful baskets. They are lightweight, look great and support a community of basket weavers in Indonesia.

Kubu is a technique where the harvested rattan is submerged in a pond of mud and leaves for about four weeks - before weaving the baskets. It is a natural treatment against woodworm and other bugs, and the rattan changes colour to an earthy pale grey.

The generous size of this laundry basket is excellent for its purpose but not so great for posting it to you. The average delivery cost is not far off the amount you pay for the basket. Therefore we do not offer our standard delivery service and charges on this item. These terms apply to the order of these baskets:

  • A limit of one basket per order. From sending many of these around Australia, we have discovered it is more economical to deliver each separately. You are welcome to do multiple orders if you want more than one basket.
  • A set delivery fee of $25 per basket. We already heavily subsidies the cost of delivery by charging only $25. You can certainly fill up the basket with other goodies, but the free shipping offer will not be applied 
  • Standard delivery anywhere in Australia only. (Express delivery is not available- they are just too big.)
  • Free local delivery within 5km of Blackburn.
  • For other Melbourne areas, we can arrange click and collect. Please get in touch with us before ordering to arrange.

Please note you will be able to add more than one basket to your cart and purchase them. However, as you will only be charged the one $25 shipping fee, it will delay the arrival of your baskets as we sort out the outstanding payment. So the quickest and easiest way to have them in your home is to order one basket and then create separate orders for any other baskets.

Product Care

This Fair Trade rattan basket has travelled from the Cirebon region of Java, Indonesia. They are made in a small village setting providing income generation for the artisan and their families.

Kubu is a technique where the harvested rattan is submerged in a pond of mud and leaves for about four weeks - before weaving the baskets. It is a natural treatment against woodworm and other bugs and the rattan changes colour to an earthy pale grey. You will find bends, cracks and snip cuts which is part of the process of hand-weaving the Kubu rattan.

Use a garden hose to spray down and remove any loose debris. A light brushing also helps. You will especially need to do this if you have purchased a washing or laundry basket. The rattan will dry very quickly and your basket will be ready to use.
