Are the products you sell eco-friendly?
Yes, most all of our products are biodegradable. The majority of our containers are made out of natural products.

What if I am not sure the product will fit my needs?
Sample orders can be placed for one to two pieces of each item. The $300 minimum order requirement is waived for sample orders.

Customer Service will change the order before shipping based on the instructions in the note.
Do I have to pay for samples?

What is the difference between white willow and a white painted basket?
White Willow (or Peeled White Willow) refers to a peeled willow (salix), where the bark has been removed to leave the natural willow without the bark. It is analogous to removing the bark from a tree branch and having left the wood of a branch. When we refer to white painted basket, it refers to a basket that has been painted white and the material, dependent on style could be willow, fern, rattan, rattancore, bamboo, among other. We usually denote a white painted basket, as the ending of our code number with WHT or WHITE.
Why do some of the item numbers have periods with extensions?
The extension after the period typically represents a product variation such as size, color, or set definition.
Do you have any videos showing how to use your products?
Yes, we have a library of videos showing how to use many of our supplies in the "Info" tab under the "How To" section. We also offer many slideshows that give examples of how our products can be used.
