These durable baskets are made of a thick leather called 'vaqueta' (saddle) leather. The edges are hand-sewn with a strong rope thread that can hold anything from throws to a good amount of books. They're the perfect catchall for toys, books, chargers, etc. Each basket has a unique look to it as the leather is raw and imperfect, making each basket a one of a kind piece.

Conditioning & Cleaning - Clean your leather piece regularly using a light colored damp cloth. For a deep clean, use a leather conditioner every 6 months. This will also help keep the leather soft and prevent cracking. We recommend Chamberlain’s Leather Milk Conditioner & Cleaner.
Stains - The sooner you catch a stain the easier it is to treat. First things first, you'll want to absorb most of the stain on a clean cloth. Follow with a leather cleaner. For stubborn stains, see a leather specialist.
Storage - Keep out of direct sunlight. Store in a dry place.
The leather used to produce this item is sourced out of the meat industry in Ecuador.
