These fine white oak, reclaimed wine barrel staves - many still tinted burgundy on the inside - may no longer contain wine, but they're just as functional and equally trustworthy recycled into baskets. Shaped to hold all manner of items, from garden tools to magazines, the multi-use baskets combine roominess with easy mobility and a smartly bowed profile. Made in USA.
Due to the 3 week production lead time for this item, orders placed after December 4th are not guaranteed for Christmas delivery.
A staggering amount of wine barrels are thrown away every year. In California alone, 200,000 hand-crafted oak wine barrels made from 200- to 300-year-old trees are discarded by wineries annually. We support the creative reuse of the barrels and are proud to extend the lives of such noble oak. There are artists, crafters, makers, builders, carpenters and allother types of artisans right here in our own backyards, and our hope is that when you think of beautiful, handcrafted products from across the globe, you think of them too. Buying domestically can be more eco-conscious, as it reduces transportation needs and consequently the energy and natural resources expended in the process; this makes us huge proponents of shopping locally.Product may vary due to its reclaimed/recycled nature.
Because these items are created from genuine recycled wine barrels, beautiful deep purple or red colors often appear on one side of wood. The color is a result of the wine it once held and you may even be able to detect a remaining aroma.
