Reshaping Bolga Baskets

How to reshape a Bolga basket

To send our baskets by post or courier, we flatten them and wrap them in bubble wrap.

Believe it or not, this does not damage the baskets: they are that well-made and robust.

When you unpack your basket, simply dip it in cold water for a minute or so, no longer. Alternatively, spray it with a hose. Let the basket rest for five minutes, allowing the grass to absorb the moisture and become pliable. Bend and reshape your basket as required. Don't worry, you can't break it. When it dries, it will once again be perfect!

Don't worry, we'll send instructions with your basket.

Or, just watch our video below.
