I was very lucky to be given the chance to review three baskets from The Basket Company. Upon receiving my delivery, the first thing I noticed was the high quality of the baskets! They look more expensive than the retail price. Delivery was fast and the baskets were well packaged preventing any damage during transit.
Grey and Buff Rattan Square Basket: Like most ladies I love jewellery. I buy a new bracelet or ring for every social occasion. I decided that rather than being scattered all over my dressing table they would be much better stored all together in my new basket! The basket is very sturdy; it does not feel like the rattan will split or fray and I really like the thickness of the rattan around the top of the basket which allows you to grip the basket easily. This basket has added an extra touch of elegance to my bedroom!
Hamper Kit: Feeling determined to show some creativity this Christmas I felt reviewing the hamper kit would push me to do so. The kit compromises of everything you need to create the perfect personalised gift. There is even a handy, easy to follow video on the website demonstrating how to use the kit. The basket is large enough to fill with many items and the wood wool and bow are both ivory therefore suitable for any occasion. The basket is strong and very well crafted, I am confident it would comfortably carry heavier items such as bottles of beer.
Provence Kitchen Drawer: This basket has been used to store some of my daughter’s items in the living room. The basket is large enough is tidy away some loose toys that did not have a home and yet does not intrude on floor space. The colour fits perfectly with the modern colour scheme. Yet again the quality and workmanship of the basket is to a high standard.
I am really happy with both the look and quality of all three baskets and would recommend them to friends and family, I intend to buy another to tidy my sons computer games!
