Safety

These baskets are made using small pieces, please keep away from small children. They are not food safe – please do not use them for food.

Care

While all inner tubes are washed thoroughly before being remade into new products, they may still mark light surfaces. Any stamps on the inner tube (both my logo and those from the inner tube manufacturer) are done with alcohol soluble inks, so keep away from hand sanitisers and harsh cleansers.

You can turn baskets inside out for dusting/cleaning. It it becomes wet, take care to dry thoroughly before placing on surfaces as water may become trapped between the layers of inner tube and later come out.

Inner tubes are a durable, water resistant material. However, these baskets have not been tested for use outdoors and are recommended for indoor use only.

Packaging

All baskets will be sent in plastic-free packaging and include a slip with important care information. They will be send folded to save on shipping costs but can be easily returned to shape. Please watch the video above for a demonstration of Kelly doing just that.
