A beautiful and timeless utility characterizes these handmade wire baskets that originate from early 1920s Sweden and which are still made there today. They were created for fisherman, gardeners, and anyone else who needed highly durable carrying and storage abilities that would not be compromised by wind, water, or weather. The same hand construction technique has been used for over 80 years, in which each wire is bent around a loop wire without welding points, making the form self-supportive from every angle. The material is acid-proof steel which should not be confused with common stainless steel. Acid-proof steel contains precious metals throughout the alloy which make is 100% stainless, unlike common 'stainless steel' which despite its name often rusts. The acid-proof steel will remain shiny and lustrous while the baskets provide years of service.
