*Handcrafted Product Disclaimer*
This product is handmade, one at a time, using natural materials. It is therefore impossible to produce identical products even though they are crafted by professionals. We believe that the natural imperfections and blemishes are what make this product charming and unique, we hope you do too!
Gently spritz with water until damp, not soaking, to readjust into the desired shape. Once damp, you can also fill the basket with blankets and leave over night to get that nice round shape. This may take a few tries, so don’t lose heart!
