As we approach Halloween and the weather turns, why not look to Wovenhill to store your logs by the fire, to handle your winter laundry loads or to de-clutter your home for the season. Whatever you use your baskets and storage trunks for, Wovenhill has one to suit you. Our baskets have been used for many things from toy baskets to hot-air-balloon props! Send us pictures of your Wovenhill purchases in-situ and we will re-post them on our Facebook page!

Why not take a look at the range of beautiful ‘superNATURAL’ materials we use for our indoor products and find their relative ranges below…

Willow

Willow is a natural material which grows near water in temperate climates. Our willow baskets display the beauty of this material as well as showing off its strength and durability, it is able to be woven into shape because it is reasonably flexible. Most of our willow (also called wicker) products are available in Bronze and Grey but some also come in White and Natural colour. See our willow range here.      

Kubu

Kubu rattan is another species of Rattan that grows abundantly in the Indonesian forests of Kalimantan, Sumatra and many other areas. It is white/beige when dried and is further processed to be used as weaving materials. Kubu rattan can be naturally stained to reach a grey colour known as Kubu grey. Our range of Kubu products is one of our largest, and for good reason; we love the variety of styles Kubu allows us to achieve in our storage solutions. Have a look at our Kubu range here.

Seagrass

As the name suggests, natural seagrass grows and is found in marine environments in shallow water around coastal areas. It is a strong, durable material; our seagrass pieces have a ‘beachy’ rustic feel ideal for any home. The natural fibres really make our seagrass range pieces shine as beautiful and unique products. Check out our Seagrass, Burford or Claverdon ranges. ­­

Water Hyacinth

Water hyacinth is a beautiful and unique-looking material which is very strong and durable. It can withstand heat and is perfect for conservatories, sun rooms and other indoor uses. As with all of our natural rattan, however, it is not weatherproof and should not be used outside. Our water hyacinth range is vast and popular among our loyal customers. Take a look at our Buttermere, Loxley, Marlow, Milton or Stow ranges to see water hyacinth at its best.    

Bamboo

Bamboo is a favourite among our customers as it is known for being the ultimate strong, natural material. Bamboo has extremely high compressive and tensile strength and is used for many purposes; even as building materials. However, we prefer it for our beautiful log baskets which we complete with handles, wheels and a removable jute liner. See our Bamboo range here.
