If you cannot find the information you’re looking for don’t hesitate to contact us today!


  • How long will my order take to make and ship?​

    • All of the products listed are already made and will be shipped within 24-48 hours of receiving your order confirmation email. Specialty custom-designed baskets may take up to 6 weeks to complete and ship.

  • What payment methods do you accept?

    • We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and PayPal.

  • What type of materials do you use? 

    • Our reeds are from the core of the rattan vine. A variety of wood is used, such as mahogany, sea grape and driftwood. 

  • Are your products handmade?

    • Yes! Each item is handmade from start to finish by our artisans. Because humans are not machines, the handcrafted products may exhibit slight flaws and inconsistencies.

    • Expect your handcrafted item to have its own unique individuality. No two pieces are exactly alike.

  • Do you take custom orders?


  • If you intend to use your basket to hold food, be sure to line it with a plastic liner, cloth napkin or paper towel to absorb any grease or oil that might be in the food.

  • Keep baskets away from heat sources like the kitchen stove, wood burning stove, radiators, fireplace and sunlight. The intense heat and UV rays of the sun can dry out the fibers of the basket making them brittle and cause dyed baskets to fade prematurely.

  • Body oils, lotion or grease can cause stains, mold, and mildew; therefore, it is best to handle your basket with clean hands.

  • To remove dust from your basket, use a feather duster or a clean, dry natural bristle paint brush. For deep cleaning, dampen a white 100% cotton cloth with cold water and blot gently. Let your basket air dry completely.

    • Avoid soaking your basket in water as this can result in it swelling and can contribute to dyed baskets losing their color.
