Thanks to its two handles, even heavy things can easily be transported with the basket. But also as storage of potatoes, balls, gloves, lingerie, as trash, garden foliage or for magazines, the basket made of stainless steel can be used. No matter whether indoors or outdoors.
Handmade Wire Baskets from Sweden
Korbos handmade wire baskets go back in time up to the early 1920s in Sweden. During these days back then in past, the baskets were used mainly by fishermen and farmers or by all those who needed reliable carrying and storage possibilities that defy weather, wind and water.
Since then, the baskets are still exactly braided by hand and with the same technique. The unique construction in which a single wire is woven by hand and without welding points, gives the baskets a special strength.
High quality! Stainless steel
The Korbo baskets are available in two variants of steel - zinc-plated (galvanised) steel or stainless steel. Both versions are rust-proof.
Galvanising is a process to prevent corrosion in which a physical barrier of zinc is placed on the surface. Galvanised steel has successfully been used for over 150 years and the wire will get a nice, matte patina over the years.
However, the stainless steel contains nickel and molybdenum which create a completely stainless connection when combined with the steel. Unlike galvanised wire, stainless steel not only protected against corrosion on the surface but completely rust-free. The basket made of stainless steel stays shiny no matter which environments and weather conditions they are exposed to.
