Multi-Purpose Basket made of Wire
The Classic 65 wire basket by Korbo with two handles and a capacity of 65 litres is a handy storage basket.. Since its load is equally balanced by the two handles, also heavy things are easy to transport. It is therefore perfectly adapted for every possible storage purpose: for potatoes, balls, gloves, as paper basket or for newspapers – it doesn't matter where you place it – it will fulfill your demands for a long time. No matter whether inside the house or outside.
Handmade Wire Baskets from Sweden
Korbo's handmade wire baskets' history reaches back to the early 1920s in Sweden. The baskets are timeless and beautiful tools that have been used by farmers and fishers as reliable transporting and storage vessels, which withstand the elements.
The manufacturing of the wire baskets began in 1922 and remained unchanged since then. The hand-braided baskets are thereby produced with the exactly same technique. This unique construction consists of only one single long wire, which is completely hand-braided without helping devices or welding machines. This is also the reason why the baskets are that durable.
Galvanised Steel or Stainless Steel
The Korbo Baskets are available in two different steel versions: galvanised or stainless steel. Both of them are rust-free.
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.
The stainless steel however, contains nickel and molybdenum which create a completely stainless connection when combined with the steel. Unlike galvanised wire, stainless steel is 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.
